Abstract
The question of Milton's misgyny has been addressed by several critics in recent years. Does Milton truly belong to the misogynistic tradition, or can his text be shown to break from this tradition? The following thesis maintains that Milton is not a misogynist. In "Paradise Lost" and other works, he does not express hatred toward women of blame Eve exclusively for the Fall. On the contrary, he expresses great appreciation for the feminine.
