This prose-work is one of the classics that encapsulates Milton's speech for the liberty of unlicensed printing to the parliament of England. Milton has squabbled against the Licensing order of 1643. The book is a significant philosophical defense of the liberated and emancipated speech and stands apart in the annals of history. Worth-read and timeless!
