Subject: [Milton-L] Early Modern Education and Milton


I'm hoping to get some suggestions for books or articles on Early Modern
education approaches, pedagogy, application, practice, etc.  Particularly
with respect to Milton--for instance, if anyone has written critically about
Milton's stance towards the system of his day--but of course, I would be
thankful for a wide variety of source materials: primary or secondary.
Anything that will shed light upon the curriculum, pedagogical approaches,
daily lessons, and even critical views of early modern approaches would be
very much appreciated. 

Thanks in advance,
