This chapter examines John Milton's use of the word perhaps in his works. Though Milton was not often tentative, he used perhaps several times in many of his works including Areopagitica, Tenure of Kings and Magistrates, and Of Reformation. This chapter suggests that the pattern of Milton's use of perhaps is too strong to see as casual, especially when perhaps is nowhere used in a neutral or casual way in his church reform pamphlets.
