An unfinished manuscript was discovered in the Public Record Office in London in 1655 named De Doctrina Christiana ( “ On Christian Doctrine”),which was later translated by Charles Sumner from Latin into English in 1825 under the name “A treatise on Christian Doctrine”. Critics said that this document reflects Milton’s attachment with scripture and his conception of ‘the Godhead’. They added that this powerful document affected considerably some Protestant thinkers such as John Wolleb, William Perkins and his student William Ames. “Though Milton did not agree with all elements of their theology, like them he tended to subordinate the Son to the father and to oppose the Trinitarian orthodoxy of Roman Catholicism. For his writings, Adrian Kempton said that Milton was in one hand attacked by extremists critics as “a bigoted puritan, who wrote an excessively long-winded, irrelevant, contorted, and obscure religious poem”, Paradise Lost, and on the other praised as a “the great champion of Christian Humanism and author of an inimitable epic masterpiece”.
In 1774 Hamilton published a series of essays. No one knew who wrote them but people assumed that the pamphlets were written by strong and well-known federalists like General Livingston and John Jay. When people discovered that Hamilton was the author of the essays, he was looked upon as a brilliant prodigy, and nicknamed “Verdict of the Congress.” Hamilton published a paper entitled “Remarks on Quebec Bill,” which targeted the British ministry, and he became even more famous as a patron and a writer.

In his interpretation, Whitman states that the freedom which is offered by democracy is for all should include all people, and not renounce those of other races, whether any social standings.
She thinks that the whole poem needs to be a justification of God’s ways. The poem is based on Milton, with a heart which is not pure and upright as he would like, whose eye is full of darkness. She thinks that God is a character that Milton needs in his story. From this analysis, I can conclude that Milton’s characters and story are declared to be inspired from the Bible, but there is a complexity and paradox in the poem that let us think that they are just created characters that Milton imagined for his story. So, it is hard to say that has achieved his task to defend God’s way, It depends on how we interpret his allusion and symbols and to what reality we can relate
In the first eight lines of the poem, Milton worries that time has passed too quickly. He has been at Cambridge studying, but has had little time to fulfill what he sees as his destiny. Milton is aware he is a talented poet, but instead of writing poetry, he has been studying. This precipitates a crisis of faith for the poet, who worries he has wasted precious time. But maybe the poet's talent, which "be it less or more," will be less when he is mature.
From the bottom of the barrel poverty to fame and fortune through his prolific and relentless writing, George Meredith made a name for himself with his eclectic choice of words and subject matters. Meredith often wrote fanciful works of fiction, such as the famous novel “The Egoist”, along with volumes upon volumes of poetry. However, with Meredith’s more carefree and happy poems are juxtaposed by his sporadic, grimmer poetry, and this darker side of his poetry seems to be inspired by what Meredith has experienced first hand. Such examples of this being his 50 sonnet collection entitled “Modern Love” which dealt with his feelings towards his first marriage, and “Dirge in Woods” comes across as his thoughts on the wars in his lifetime.
