Master of Arts
Unquestionably, behind Milton's writings stands his critical theory. Without it he could never have been great. His ability to select what was basic in the production of art was a prime factor in giving him the remarkable proficiency and power he displays in handling poetic forms in such a way that they ideally represent the thought and emotions experienced in nature.
