This review is from: John Milton: Life, Work, and Thought (Paperback)
I've been writing a historical novel about the year 1658, when Oliver Cromwell died. Milton was a central character in that year as a secretary of state in the government. I found this biography really detailed and it gave me lots of valuable information. I read it selectively and not all the way through. It's thoroughness comes with a certain dryness, but I didn't mind that for my purposes. I recommend it strongly as a source book, but perhaps not as 'good read'.
