Milton by Himself
This program examines the life and times of John Milton through his major and autobiographical writings. The visuals—period art and location photography of the London and Cambridge sites associated with Milton—combined with the music of the time and Milton’s own words, together trace the rise and fall of a tragic figure caught between the worlds of ancient glory and contemporary politics—a Renaissance man in the maelstrom of the Baroque. Produced by Hugh Richmond, directed by Paul Shepard. (27 minutes)
