John Milton was a poet who lived and worked in the real world during the English Civil War. He was a Republican, a Roundhead, and secretary to Oliver Cromwell, and produced his greatest work when blind.
Dryden was the first Poet Laureate. A contemporary of Milton, he penned marvellous satire on the foibles of the Restoration period under Charles II.
David Smeeton will bring some of both Milton and Dryden’s poetry back to life.
