Abstract

This essay seeks to address Milton’s engagement with drama. Such a topic appears a little absurd given that, although sketches and fragments of dramas based mainly on biblical stories exist in the Trinity Manuscript and Milton defended drama in his commonplace book, he never completed a play intended for performance and his involvement in masque culture seems limited to the Welsh Marches.1 It is also a topic that seems to go through cycles. Jonas Barish’s The Antitheatrical Prejudice, seems to have invited assertions that Milton’s writing exudes a disdain for the stage, a poise that would be in keeping with his Puritan leanings.
