John Milton - poetry, poems

born December 9th, 1608
died November 8th, 1674

there's more to life than books you know, but not much more...paradise lost, the greatest poem ever written in this our english language, was in fact written by a woman, who was in fact taking dictation from a man.

and yeah, i know people besides fish have written on the guy, i'm just still too bemused by bérubé's line about enjambment to let that knowledge play a determining role in any a my actions.
