An Introduction to
The Minor Poems in English
of John Milton

A D Nuttall

As though with a revolutionary cry of ‘Back to Books!’ Milton trained himself on Greek, Latin, Hebrew and Italian literature with the rigour of a modern athlete. It is however his shorter poems in English that form the subject of A. D. Nuttall’s fascinating study in which he discusses the characteristics of the Renaissance, the humanist tradition, the masque, the art of translation, and, importantly, poetic diction.

His perceptive analysis and accessible style help illuminate key works including: On the Morning of Christ’s Nativity, L’Allegro, Il Penseroso, the masque Comus, as well as the sonnets and Lycidas, which is, he argues convincingly, possibly the best lyric poem in the English language.
