The poet Milton, like many others afflicted by physical deformities, had a life much modified by his handicap. The author of this book has herself been blind almost from early youth and thus writes with a special sentiment. Portions of the book consider the cause of Milton's blindness, his own references to it, the reflections of his character in his poetry, and a final chapter entitled "Milton's Eyes Take a Holiday." This discusses the effects of the blindness, the autographs of Milton, praise and dispraise of his work and similar topics. A good bibliography makes the book complete.
