Description

This work presents a theoretical and historicized reading of the production of the "autonomous" subject in Milton's prose and in "Paradise Lost". It rejects the orthodoxy that liberal humanism is just a form of domination, and reads Milton's texts as revolutionary. Although Milton participates in the formation of discourses of sexuality, labour and the nature of reason which come to be normative, neither Milton's texts nor modernity more generally can be understood without also accepting the dynamism inherent in the belief in individual freedom.
