Carol's question is a good one, Alexandra.  If you can think of any 
specific parameters that'd be helpful.  The facet of PL that seems to 
get the most attention, however -- especially from non-Miltonists -- is 
Milton's depiction of Satan.  So perhaps the first three books?  But 
even this is pretty large, and I suspect you're probably looking for 
something like 20-50 lines.  What did you have in mind?
