Dear Miltonists,

Whether or not confession is always good for the soul, sometimes it's 
just necessary. So here goes. If anyone is using my "Parallel Prose" 
edition of PL in a class, please tell your students that in Book 3, line 
55, Milton is asking the Muse for help to "Tell of things invisible to 
mortal sight"--NOT "invisible to mortal fight"! :-(

My text of PL was based on a scan, and you know how it is with those 
pesky long esses. Furthermore, the more familiar a line is, the less 
likely one's eye is to notice what's wrong. In any case, please accept 
my abject apologies. A correction has already been sent to the printer, 
so that  copies appearing toward the end of this month should be purged 
of the error.
