Happy Birthday, John Milton

By George Oates

Best known for Paradise Lost, John Milton was a poet, author, polemicist and civil servant born on December 9, 1608.

The 1860 Collier edition of Paradise Lost includes some beautiful illustrations by Gustave Doré too. Well worth a look!

There are also over 1,000 books about Milton in Open Library, if you’re interested to read critically about him.
