Synopsis : In The Age of Milton and the Scientific Revolution, Angelica Duran reveals the way in which Milton's works interacted with the revolutionary work of his contemporaries in science to participate in the dynamic “advancement of learning” of the time period. Bringing together primary materials by early modern scientists, including Robert Boyle, William Gilbert, William Harvey, Isaac Newton, John Ray, and John Wilkins as well as educational reformers such as Samuel Hartlib and Henry Oldenburg, The Age of Milton and the Scientific Revolution positions Milton's Literary Studies as a coequal partner with the new cosmological theories, mathematical developments, telescopes, and scientific tracts that so thoroughly affected every aspect of recorded life in seventeenth century England. Duran shows, for example, how new developments in ornithology worked to shape the Lady's power in the young Milton's celebratory A Mask, how mathematics informed the sexual relationship of Adam and Eve in his mature epic Paradise Lost, and how developments in optics transformed the blinded hero of the blind author's moving tragedy Samson Agonistes. While this study is indebted to the work of historians of science from C. P. Snow and Thomas Kuhn to Stephen Shapin and Stephen Jay Gould it is not a history of science per se, but rather a cultural study that appreciates poetry as a unique lens through which early modern England's large-scale developments in education and science are clarified and reflected. What emerges is an intimate sense of how the enormous changes of the English Scientific Revolution affected individual lives and found their ways into Milton's enduring poetry and prose.

About the Author: Angelica Duran is professor of English, comparative literature, and religious studies at Purdue University. She served as Director of Religious Studies at Purdue from 2009 to 2013.
