This is an auction for MILTON & THE ENGLISH REVOLUTION by Christopher Hill. reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! MILTON & THE ENGLISH REVOLUTION has to be considered as one of the most thorough and comprehensive examinations of Milton in relation to his life, texts, and the political and religious background to the period. Specifically, the book is conveniently divided into useful subsections that deal with the key Miltonic themes. With a predominantly literary emphasis, texts such as Comus, Lycidas, Paradise Lost/Regained etc., are all examined as individual works but more importantly within the period as a whole, thus helping to establish a broader understanding of Milton himself. Christopher Hill is one of THE foremost authorities on Milton, and thus this book is of considerable value."

"FIVE STARS!!!!! Christopher Hill is a man who writes with real understanding of 17th century England and the religious motivations in the conflict that devastated these countries at that time. Milton was a man at the centre of the English turmoil But he was no orthodox Puritan with his defence of divorce and polygamy and his attack on the Trinity. But as Hill writes, 'Milton was not just a fine writer. he is the greatest English revolutionary who is also a poet, he is the greatest English poet who is also a revolutionary. Milton was fortunate to survive the Restoration. He was the most prominent supporter of regicide not to lose his life. So he wrote his three great epics, not only, says Hill, 'to justify the ways of God to men' in Eden but also in the failure of the English revolution."
