Abstract

This paper is a commentary of Robert Graves's THE STORY OF MARIE POWELL, WIFE TO MR MILTON (1943), a historical novel set in the English Revolution. Special attention is paid to the implied authorial evaluations and to Robert Graves's personal investment in the story. There is an ambivalence in the figure of Milton both as a villain, the emblem of egolatry and authoritarian patriarchy, and as an abject self-portrait of the author.
