the bf and I are going to do a "Paradise Lost" book club... ajah Send a noteboard - 02/10/2010 08:29:38 AM
... I could barely force myself to read Milton while at University (which is really saying something because I was an English Major specializing in renaissance period, so Milton was, while not Shakespeare, pretty important for my degree.)

But the bf loves him, so I am trying to meet him in the middle here, and I do like Paradise Lost better than his other works. I also got the accompanying book of Doré illustrations to keep me interested with big pretty pictures.
