“Milton is a poet who must be read aloud” Discuss and illustrate this debate…
As a support for A level students reading Paradise Lost, I am going to record a sound version of the text and post it here. I intend to break the text into useful sections and to post MP3 files to the site. These may not have the panache of professional versions… on the other hand, they are free!
