>Did Nietzsche read Milton's Paradise Lost?

Dear Jeffery, I read basically everything by Nietzsche, but as far as
I can remember I would say he didn't. Otherwise, I should have
noticed.
But, of course, this is no evidence at all.

So, hmm, very good question. BUT what's sure is that Nietzsche
generally _hated_ English culture and philosophy. The more so as in
the 19th century - I think - Milton was still supposed to be a
Puritan, not "beyond good and evil".
