Such is the title of a bio of Charles II, reviewed in this weeks NY 
Times Book section.  This review mentions Milton in the context of 
"great minds" of the time: "Hobbes and Locke, Milton and Marvell, 
Newton, Dryden and the inveterate diarist Pepys".  There is a 
considerable discussion of licensing, and much attention is given to the 
Plague and the Great Fire.
