About the Author
John Milton (1608-1674) was arguably one of the best-read persons of his epoch. Milton's commonplace book reveals that in addition to the thoroughly humanistic education that he received at Christ's College Cambridge (1625-1632), he also conducted an extensively broad reading program of his own immediately after concluding his university studies, a program that included forays into nearly every branch of learning in a period that he affectionately referred to as his "studious retirement" (1632-1638).
Matthew Stallard is assistant professor of English at Ohio University, Athens, Ohio, where he teaches Renaissance and Medieval Literatures. He is the former assistant editor of Milton Quarterly.
