Terrance Makes The Telegraph

Lindall's Scroll

Writing about John Milton for The Telegraph ("The marvels of Milton's back catalogue," June 21, 2016), Simon Heffer informs us that his "purpose . . . [in this Telegraph column] is to describe the achievement of John Milton, . . . the finest poet in . . . [the English] language, and [explain] how . . . [his achievement] extends beyond his famed Paradise Lost."

Of interest, then, is Heffer's choice of Lindall's artwork to illustrate his point about Milton's status as the finest poet in the English language.

Update: Here's a link to my follow-up blog entry.

Thanks, Jeffery!

I'll send both links to the students in my "Milton as Writer and Literary Figure" class.

All best,
Martin Kuester
