I wd like to recommend "Teaching Shakespeare," a v short article by Stephen Greenblatt (NY Times Sunday Magazine, 9/13/15) that with some relevance to Milton studies.
Greenblatt writes about the challenges of teaching a student population without the "verbal acuity" with which earlier students approached early-modern authors. The essay is thought-provoking and could trigger some ideas and discussion on the list.
Incidentally, apropos of the interest in "They Who Fell" and "Chaos Umpire Sits": I hope people will remember Steven Brust's "To Reign in Hell" (1984). This novel was a consistent post-PL favorite of students in my Milton classes.
Regards to all, Diana Benet
