John Milton knew the satirical tradition and sought to join it. Deeply versed in classical literature, Biblical models and humanist scholarship, he built an idiosyncratic theory of satire to support a satiric practice conditioned by the two temporalities most usually on his mind: the needs of the moment and the immortality of fame. Yet the association of Milton and satire still does

Thomas N. Corns

Connections between Milton and Winstanley have sometimes been drawn, most effectively by Christopher Hill, in his unfairly neglected Milton and the English Revolution . 1 Hill’s book achieved a certain notoriety because of its larger argument that Milton’s writings show a complex relationship with the heterodox thinking of what he termed ‘the Radical

11 The comte de Mirabeau and the works of John Milton and Catharine Macaulay Introduction The case of the comte de Mirabeau is typical of the more general picture of the influence of British models and ideas during the French Revolution. For the most part, historians have either ignored or downplayed the British influences upon him. Even W. B. Fryer, who devoted an entire article to the subject of Mirabeau’s trip to England in the winter of 1784–85, concluded that: ‘English influence did not become a major factor on Mirabeau’s political career’.1 This verdict

Other studies have shown that the most ‘successful’ fabricated stories can attract more likes and retweets than the most popular and accurate stories published in the mainstream media ( Allcott and Gentzkow, 2017 ). These findings cut to the heart of some of our most celebrated ideals about free speech and democracy. For centuries, liberal philosophers have argued that open debate and discussion will edge us closer to the truth. As John Milton proclaimed in 1644 , ‘Let [truth] and Falsehood

Polemic and ideology in Heylyn’s 1630s writings
Anthony Milton

editions of Microcosmus would appear to have been published without Heylyn’s overview, but their publication simultaneously with his controversial writings for the government presents a strangely schizophrenic figure.
