Njegov religiozni ep Izgubljeni raj smatra se jednim od najboljih dela napisanih na engleskom jeziku. Milton je aktivno učestvovao u političkim borbama svoje epohe. Kad je nakon pogubljenja kralja u januaru 1649. objavio spis u kojem opravdava taj Kromvelov postupak, imenovan je sekretarom novoosnovanog državnog veća. Na tom poslu je izgubio vid 1652. godine. Nakon trijumfa kontrarevolucije 1660, njegove knjige su javno spaljivane, a on bačen u tamnicu, mada je ubrzo oslobođen.

Vilijam Hejlijeva biografija iz 1796. godine ga naziva „najvećim englekim autorom”,[1] i on se generalno smatra „jednim od najprominentnijih pisaca na engleskom jeziku”,[2] mada je kritički prijem oscilovao tokom vekova nakon njegove smrti (često zbog njegovog republikanizma). Samjuel Džonson je hvalio Izgubljeni raj kao „poemu koja ... u pogledu dizajna može da zauzme prvo mesto, a što se tiče performanse, drugo, među produkcijama ljudskog uma”, mada nije podržavao Miltonovo političko opredeljenje.[3]

NapomeneУреди

  1. ^ "When I consider how my light is spent" is one of the best known of Milton's sonnets. The last three lines (concluding with "They also serve who only stand and wait") are particularly well known, though rarely in context. The poem may have been written as early as 1652, although most scholars believe it was composed sometime between June and October 1655, when Milton's blindness was essentially complete.
