Carol Barton wrote that current students reading
Paradise Lost lack:

"15. attention span (in the face of the absence of car
chases, explicit steamy sex, filthy language, and gory

But ... I thought that Paradise Lost had ALL of these.
The Chariot driving the rebel angels out of heaven.
The pre- and post- (especially post-) lapsarian sex
