Readings include a wide selection of Milton's poetry and prose with a special focus on "Paradise Lost". Milton?s writings contain arguments regarding free will, tyranny, and slavery that inform modern conceptions of civil liberty, republican government, and free speech. In the US Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and other early framers credit "Paradise Lost" as having shaped their ideas of religious and civil liberty in a democratic republic.
