Beschreibung

John Milton (9 December, 1608 8 November, 1674) was an English poet, prose, polemicist and civil servant for the Commonwealth of England. Although this role was established in his later years, Milton's early life provides insight into his education and his poetic development, along with his start in politics. Milton was educated under a strong Protestant influence and attended Christ's College, Cambridge with the intention of pursuing a career as a minister. During his college years, Milton produced his poems L'Allegro and Il Penseroso. After leaving Cambridge, Milton changed his mind about serving as a minister. Instead, he spent his time studying and composing poetry, which led to the production of Arcades and Comus. After the death of his mother, Milton left England to tour Europe. Upon returning, Milton was brought into the realm of political writing and he began a career composing political tracts which put forth his views on state and religious matters. He first supported the presbyterian leaders who were lining up in England behind Stephen Marshall; a few years later he would promote more radical views.
