About Book

The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
Poem written in 1631 by John Milton, published in his Poems (1645). It was written in rhymed octosyllabics and has a 10-line prelude. In contrast to his companion poem "L'Allegro," "Il Penseroso" invokes the goddess Melancholy and describes the satisfactions of solitude, music, epic poetry, tragic drama, and the meditative life in general.
