Course Description

The principal focus will be John Milton's major poetry, above all Comus and Lycidas, Paradise Lost, and Samson Agonistes. Substantive attention to Milton as a reader, to his invention of the idea of having a career as a writer, and to the ways in which his writing has been framed for (and by) students. Participants will be given training in archival research and asked to develop a research project that probes some aspect of how Milton has been lodged in cultural history.
