Courses: Milton & Dissent (ENGLB256001)

Spring 2013

Class Number: 1166
John Milton’s epic poem, "Paradise Lost," was written during a period of cultural turmoil and innovation. This renaissance poem has helped shape the way later writers understand their profession, especially their obligation to foster dissent as a readerly practice. Exploring this legacy, readings interleave "Paradise Lost" and Milton’s political writings with responses by later revolutionary writers, from Blake to Philip Pullman.
