What can studying the past tell us about our world today?

What can 17th century literature teach us about the present? In the first in an occasional series of videos featuring members of the Yale Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), Professor of English Feisal Mohamed tells us how Milton’s poetry responds to the political questions that shape our world to this day. 

Mohamed is one of more than 120 new faculty members to arrive at FAS in the past three years. These new members of the FAS community ask and answer the questions that help us understand our world — past, present, and future.
