dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to determine the political theory of John Milton as the poet-statesman expressed that theory in Paradise Lost. To accomplish the purpose of this study, it was proposed to answer the following questions. 1. How did John Milton’s political theories influence his political behavior and actions in the Commonwealth? 2. How did John Milton conceive the "State of Nature" 3. How does Milton account for the origin and development of the State? 4. What does John Milton regard to be the origin of political authority? 5. What is the relationship of political authority to law, as perceived by John Milton? 6. At what point does the sovereign exercise of political authority subvert itself to the tyrannical abuse of political authority? 7. How does Milton define "freedom” and how does he relate freedom to civil rule?
