Notes

Abstract: This paper examines 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, 'Paradise Lost'. The meaning of 'sovereignty' is explored and as well as the consequences of an expanding book trade on the concept of women's status in Milton's time. The results of a close reading of 'Paradise Lost', from an ecofeminist perspective, demonstrates that 'Paradise Lost' is not a protofeminist work, but rather a continuation of an anti-feminist movement initiated by Renaissance pamphleteers.
