Description

David Ainsworth teaches Seventeenth-Century British literature as part of the Strode Program, specializing in John Milton, in the Department of English in the College of Arts and Sciences. Ainsworth is the originator of the Edifice Project, which seeks to increase undergraduate investment in their work by making papers written one semester relevant to future semesters of the class. Here, he reads "Areopagitica, A speech of Mr. John Milton for the liberty of unlicensed printing to the Parliament of England", the prose work by John Milton, first published in 1644. Milton's famous pamphlet defends freedom of the press and was an influence on the American Constitution.
