The age of Milton and thecontemporary writers fall in the major of ‘metaphysical’.  Prose and poetry both fall into that age.Notably, it is to state that, the Age of Milton and the Age of Dryden, thoughin a broad way we are bound to distinguish between them, really overlap, and asa result it is extremely difficult, in grouping the writers of the periodbetween 1625 and 1700 under one or the other head, to establish any quitesatisfactory order among them. Those who, while really contemporary with them,belong rather to the new generation, or for any reason may most conveniently beconnected with it.
