|ד"ר מירי באום Miri Tashma-Baum
|John Milton is often considered the greatest English writer of the seventeenth century, and one of the most interesting, moving, and influential writers in the history of English literature as a whole. The course will consist of readings of selected parts of the work of John Milton, primarily of Milton’s chief work, the Biblical epic Paradise Lost, whose year of publication often marks the end of the English literary Renaissance. The epic - a long narrative poems that tells of and celebrates heroic figures and their achievements - was traditionally considered the most prestigious
literary genre, the one in which the mature poet examines and re-asserts the beliefs and values of his culture. Milton’s epic was unique in giving this classical genre a Christian plot, and as we follow some of the twists and turns of the epic adventures, we will discover that while it tells an exciting story, the epic also affords fascinating insights into the thoughts, beliefs and deep-rooted anxieties of the period, a time
of immense political, social and intellectual activity and change.
