We will continue to read books from Paradise Lost aloud (in C Term we read Books I, II, and IX (temptation and fall).  Now we will read the final three Books: What happens after the fall?  What is Milton’s resolution?  We will read what happens to our understanding as we read aloud, drama-fashion.  What questions arise?

GROUP LEADER Gene McCarthy taught Milton at the College of the Holy Cross for many years.  Along with Rodger Martin, he was part of Milton Ensemble, a group that presented dramatic readings. He is convinced that reading aloud opens the poem to fresh experience.

REQUIRED READING:  Scripts of each book will be available during the first class for a small fee.

FOR THE FIRST CLASS (Optional): read Paradise Lost, Book X.
