Read full description of the books:
Mais do que por razões de ordem utilitária, por imperativos de mercado, por razões democrático-funcionais ou pelo poder auto-replicante das ideias, a liberdade de consciência, pensamento e expressão deve justificar-se a partir e por causa da especial dignidade da pessoa humana, enquanto centro espiritual e moral autónomo de produção de sentido e cultura. Em 2008, ano em que se celebram os quatrocentos anos do nascimento de John Milton, o princípio do livre exame dos textos e das ideias mantém toda a sua actualidade e pertinência. Por isso se saúda vivamente a iniciativa da publicação da obra Areopagitica entre nós.

Read information about the authorJohn Milton was an English poet, polemicist, man of letters, and a civil servant for the Commonwealth of England under Oliver Cromwell. He wrote at a time of religious flux and political upheaval, and is best known for his epic poem Paradise Lost (1667), written in blank verse.
Milton's poetry and prose reflect deep personal convictions, a passion for freedom and self-determination, and the urgent issues and political turbulence of his day. Writing in English, Latin, Greek, and Italian, he achieved international renown within his lifetime, and his celebrated Areopagitica (1644)—written in condemnation of pre-publication censorship—is among history's most influential and impassioned defenses of free speech and freedom of the press.
William Hayley's 1796 biography called him the "greatest English author," and he remains generally regarded "as one of the preeminent writers in the English language," though critical reception has oscillated in the centuries since his death (often on account of his republicanism). Samuel Johnson praised Paradise Lost as "a poem which...with respect to design may claim the first place, and with respect to performance, the second, among the productions of the human mind," though he (a Tory and recipient of royal patronage) described Milton's politics as those of an "acrimonious and surly republican".
Because of his republicanism, Milton has been the subject of centuries of British partisanship.
