A Writing Life
This chapter discusses the writing career of John Milton in order to provide a better understanding about his use of words in this prose and poetry. It explains that rather than planning his career in the cool environment of study, he wrote mostly in response to immediate stimuli from the outside world. He also loved verbal a fight and he believed that the energies released by such allowed him to ransack the coffers of his native language and fill them with words unfound by others.
