Paradise Lost - All Night Reading

03/03/2017 - 5:00pm to 03/04/2017 - 3:45am
B14 McCosh Hall (Basement), Outer Entry Door #2

We are holding a marathon reading of John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost this Friday, 3 March in the the Hinds Library, McCosh Hall basement; enter through entrance 2.  We will begin at 5 PM and continue until we finish the poem, probably around 3 AM, but with a dinner break c. 7-8 p.m.  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, sex and gender, the order of things, the origins of evil and the fate of mankind.  Come for some of the event or persevere from beginning to end: all are welcome.  Please contact us (; if you have any questions, and I very much hope you join us.  Light refreshments provided.   'Awake, arise, or be forever fall'n!'
