Paradise Lost: A Marathon Reading!

February 8, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - February 9, 2013 @ 4:00 am

Professor Russ Leo has organized a marathon reading of John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost on Friday February 8th in the Hinds Library in McCosh (Room B14).  We will begin at 6 PM and continue until we finish the poem, probably around 3 or 4 AM.  We will take turns reading from this magnificent work, and proceed across twelve books, from beginning to end, to meditate together on Milton’s fundamental questions of knowledge and temptation, predestination, the order of things, the origins of evil and the fate of mankind. You can contact rleo@princeton.edu for further questions, and we very much hope you join us.
 Awake, arise, or be forever fall’n!
