ENGL 220 Milton Professor John Rogers Milton, Power, and the Power of Milton There are some Divines that tell us, that in the frame of this lower World God proceeded from the less to the more perfect; and thereupon, according to them, the Woman's being created last will not be a very great argument to debase the dignity of the Female Sex. If some of the Men own this, `tis the more likely to be true: The Great Milton , a very grave Author, brings in Adam thus speaking to Eve , in his Paradise Lost , lib. 9: O fairest of Creation? last and best Of all God's Works. ---Lady Mary Chudleigh, The Female Preacher (1699) Patience and Submission are the only Comforts that are left to a poor People, who groan under Tyranny, unless they are Strong enough to break the Yoke. . . Not Milton himself would cry up liberty to poor Female Slaves , or plead for the Lawfulness of Resisting a Private Tyranny. ---Mary Astell, Some Reflections upon Marriage (1700) [These writers] however, are all of a simple character; the men have been supposed to remain men, the women women when they write.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
