Paradise Lost is, to my mind, the greatest poem in English.
Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials trilogy
The 17th Century scholar John Milton supported the English revolution both in English and Latin, sacrificing his eyesight by doing so. Publishing The Ready and Easy Way to Establish a Free Commonwealth on the eve of the Restoration risked his life, with his great poems full of biblical, historical and allegorical references published after this political defeat.
