Excerpt from Samson Agonistes

Milton was designed for Holy Orders, and disposed to enter them, but upon maturer consideration learnt to prefer a blameless silence. So then at the age of twenty four he retired to his father's house in the country, at Horton, in Buckinghamshire, with what aim and purpose those will see who read the sonnet written by him 0 n his being arrived at the age of twenty-three. Fortunately his father was a man of means, able and willing to permit the son to follow his bent.

Milton's working life divides well into three periods, with a brief interlude. First poetical, or Horton period, five years, from 16 32 37; interlude of Italian travel, 16 38 39; prose period, lightened by glorious sonnets, twenty years, from 1639 - 60; second, or great poetical period, 1660-7 1.
