angel paradise lost

One of England’s greatest writers and most radical thinkers, Milton wrote during a turbulent time. His writing speaks to crises of personal and political liberty that can feel oddly familiar - and equally divisive - in our own moment. Reading and working together, we'll try to get to grips with Milton's innovative forms, including an epic poem - Paradise Lost - that rejects the bondage of rhyme. Along the way, we'll ask some of the big questions: Do we have free will? What is the nature of evil? And how do angels have sex, anyway?
