I have found that students have trouble following Milton's prose.
In the belief that hearing his prose read aloud might help students with
their comprehension, I have started to record readings of his work.
They will be available as I complete them via the University of
Alabama's iTunes page. If I can sneak a little Milton onto a student's
Shuffle, I will be content.
As I started work on this recording, Internet Archive posted a complete
reading of Areopagitica on their site. I haven't listed to the entire
audio, but I thought I'd provide a link as some may prefer this version:
Here's a direct link to my reading of Areopagitica on iTunes:
Or, if that link is too unwieldy, you can reach this recording and
future ones from this page:
Next on my slate will be "Of Education," which may be also be of general
use. I expect there will be fewer takers for an audio version of
Eikonoklastes, but one will be in the cards at some point in the future,
I hope, along with the rest of Milton's prose output. (I expect some of
these projects will need to be group efforts.)
If anyone is interested in undertaking a recording, or part of one, feel
free to e-mail me at dainsworth at bama.ua.edu.
