ENGL 330 - Milton


FDR: HL
Credits: 3
Planned Offering: Winter

Prerequisites: ENGL 299. This course surveys one of the most talented and probing authors of the English language – a man whose reading knowledge and poetic output has never been matched, and whose work has influenced a host of writers after him, including Alexander Pope, William Blake, William Wordsworth, and Mary Shelley. In this course, we read selections from Milton’s literary corpus, drawing from such diverse genres as lyric, drama, epic and prose polemic. Students have the opportunity to read Milton in the context of literary criticism and to place him within his historical milieu, not the least of which includes England’s dizzying series of political metamorphoses from Monarchy to Commonwealth, Commonwealth to Protectorate, and Protectorate back to Monarchy.
