Description: In this presentation, the author discusses research on the effect of Queen Elizabeth I's sovereignty as a monarch on English literature in the 17th century England, especially the work of John Milton's 'Paradise Lost'. The meaning of 'sovereignty' is explored as well as the consequences of an expanding book trade on the concept of women's status in Milton's time.
