Description: Milton and Modernity presents a theoretical and historicized reading of the production of the "autonomous" subject in Milton's prose and in Paradise Lost. It rejects the current orthodoxy that liberal humanism is just a form of domination, and reads Milton's text as revolutionary. Although Milton participates in the formation of discourse of sexuality, labor, and the nature of reason which come to be normative, neither Milton's text nor modernity more generally can be understood without also accepting the dynamism inherent in the belief in individual freedom.
