The author presents an account of Milton's political philosophy set in the closest relationship to his personal and intellectual history as a political man during the English revolution, the decisive event of his life and time. He follows Milton's mind in its political manifestations from his earlier poetry before the outbreak of revolt against the Stuart monarchy, through his activity as a passionate partisan and revolutionary publicist in the decades 1640-1660, to his final work as an epic poet following the revolution's failure and the restoration of Charles II in 1660.
