Hinds Library, McCosh Hall
Marathon reading of John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost on Friday 8 February 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. Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>) if you have any questions, and I very much hope you join us. Awake, arise, or be forever fall'n!
