Basing his competition on various strains of argument, Michael Bryson posits that John Milton-possibly the main well-known 'Christian' poet in English literary history-was, in truth, an atheist.
First, in line with his organization with Arian principles (denial of the doctrine of the Trinity), his argument for the de Deo idea of production (which places him based on the materialism of Spinoza and Hobbes), and his Mortalist argument that the human soul dies with the human physique, Bryson argues that Milton was once an atheist via the widely used definitions of the interval. And moment, because the poet who takes a reader from the presence of an imperious, monarchical God in Paradise misplaced, to the internal-almost Gnostic-conception of God in Paradise Regained, to the absence of any God whatever in Samson Agonistes, Milton strikes from a theist (with God) to whatever even more recognizable as a contemporary atheist place (without God) in his poetry.
Among the author's targets within the Atheist Milton is to account for tensions over the belief of God which, in Bryson's view, pass all of the as far back as Milton's earliest poetry. during this learn, he argues such tensions are relevant to Milton's poetry-and to any try to needless to say poetry by itself terms.
