John Milton was born into a middle-class family in 1608. He was a poet and man of letters who got involved in the radical politics of his time. He championed the cause of the Puritans and Oliver Cromwell and served in Cromwell's government. In 1651 he went blind. When Charles II was restored to the throne of England in 1660, Milton was arrested but he was soon released to live the rest of his life in seclusion, where he was able to create some of his greatest work.
