Ordinary Human Language

by Brian Crane

Poet, Pamphleteer and Patriot

-Book Cover

I found Milton interesting early in his life, but as he got older, I was less and less interested in what he was doing. He seems like an unpleasant person. By the time the war was over, the Commonwealth had crumbled and Milton was off in the country writing Paradise Lost, I had lost almost all interest.

The most useful part of the book is its history of the British Civil War.
