British poet who posted his empty verse masterpiece, Heaven Shed, in 1667. His additional works include Heaven Regained, Samson Agonistes, and Animadversions. He published his 1st two psalms at age group fifteen and later on attended Christ’s University, Cambridge. He published Paradise Lost throughout a period when he was blind and surviving in poverty. He wedded twice and experienced five children. Through the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Hundreds of years, popular British opinion kept Milton’s literary function to be a minimum of add up to — and perhaps more advanced than — that of William Shakespeare.
