[Milton-L] Hearing the poem

For people planning spring syllabi: YouTube has two excellent short 
clips (under three minutes each) of Sir Ian Richardson reading the 
Invocation to Book One and Satan's first speech.

Go to YouTube.  Type in "Ian Richardson Paradise Lost First Part" for 
the Invocation; then try "Ian Richardson Paradise Lost Book 1," which 
will get you Satan's first speech.

I have put these to links on my syllabus.  It seems an excellent way to 
help students adjust to the cadence of the language without having to go 
through more complicated steps, like putting recordings on reserve, etc.

All the best--Margie
