Summary
"In The Age of Milton and the Scientific Revolution, Angelica Duran reveals the way in which Milton's works interacted with the revolutionary work of his contemporaries in science to participate in the dynamic "advancement of learning" of the time period." "While this study is indebted to the work of historians of science - from C. P. Snow and Thomas Kuhn to Stephen Shapin and Stephen Jay Gould - it is not a history of science per se, but rather a cultural study that appreciates poetry as a unique lens through which early modern England's large-scale developments in education and science are clarified and reflected. What emerges is an intimate sense of how the enormous changes of the English Scientific Revolution affected individual lives and found their ways into Milton's enduring poetry and prose."--BOOK JACKET
