In their own rather different political contexts, Milton and Blake each adopted republican and revolutionary positions. In taking a stance on religion each has integrated their own ideas on the nature of republican government while simultaneously being bound by the fetters and constraints of the time. Both Paradise Lost by Milton and Milton combined with The Marriage of Heaven and Hell by Blake form a concept of freedom that is constrained by the conceptual ideas of the authors while equally extending knowledge of freedom and society.
