Young Milton

The Emerging Author, 1620-1642

Edited by Edward Jones

  • By demonstrating that Milton's early career is as worthy of close evaluation as his political prose, this volume signals a new direction in Milton Studies
  • The methodological diversity and interdisciplinary approach of the volume yield a wide range of essays on topics including Milton's personal letters, Latin prolusions, and funeral elegies; his educational reading; exposure to puritan clergymen; and the most celebrated crux in his writing
  • The tripartate structure allows readers to see the interconnections between Milton's life and art, specifically the religious, political, poetic and personal contexts in which Milton lived and participated
