Paradise Lost is among the greatest English language poems (though often erroneously considered too “difficult” for a modern reader). These gentle sessions will explore its beauty, meaning and relevance.
“OF Mans First Disobedience, and the Fruit
Of that Forbidden Tree, whose mortal tast
Brought Death into the World, and all our woe,
With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
Restore us, and regain the blissful Seat,
[ . . . ]
Things unattempted yet in Prose or Rhime.”
