John Milton Quotes

John Milton (1608 – 1674) was an English poet, pamphleteer, and historian. At the age of fifteen, Milton translated Psalm 114 from the original Hebrew text, later mastering several more languages through self-study. He obtained his Master of Arts degree from Christ’s College, Cambridge in 1632. Milton’s works revealed him as an advocate for civil liberty and liberty of conscience during a time of political and religious instability. Although he is best known for his epic poem Paradise Lost, his pamphlet Areopagitica is also widely recognized, and is regarded as one of history’s most influential defences of freedom of speech and expression.
