Wilson vividly places Milton's works within the historical and social context of seventeenth century England most particularly the sectarianism which ultimately led to the English revolutions and the Interregnum and divided families, including Milton's own. In this excellent introduction Wilson provides an alternative perspective on Milton to those offered by other biographers and historians, most particularly the Marxist historian Christopher Hill. ( )
