[Milton-L] Teaching with Lewalski's _Life_

Dear Miltonists,

I'd like to solicit advice and pedagogical anecdotes from those of you who 
have used Lewalski's _Life of Milton_ in undergraduate courses. I'm about to 
teach a Milton seminar for the first time in the fall, and I'm tentatively 
planning on assigning four or five selections from the biography throughout 
the semester. I'm a bit nervous, though, that what I find eloquent and 
readable accounts of Milton's life and political milieu will strike my 
students as discouragingly confusing and arcane.

Thanks in advance,
