The Best 100 Authors of All Time Divider

       Most readers of John Milton would think of paradise lost or paradise regained upon seeing the author's name.  I think of his areopogetica,  a brilliant treatise against censorship of the printed word.  Milton was no stranger to censorship himself, having had many pamphlets of his censored because they dealt with a touch subject in those days, divorce.  Any writer speaking his voice in print as an advocate of divorce could not publish his work.  The line I will never forget from areopogetica goes something like "who will censor the censors?"  To me, that says it all.
