A Marathon Reading of Milton's Paradise Lost
at Longwood University
Friday, 17 October 2014
The Department of English and Modern Languages would like to invite members
of the Longwood and Farmville communities to join us in a marathon
reading of Milton's Paradise Lost.
Location: Lawn in front of the Grainger Building
Time: 8:00 a.m. until ca. 5:00-6:00 p.m.
Milton was an advocate of freedom and liberty, so readers are
welcome to come and go as their schedules permit.
Sitting in to read even fifty or a hundred lines or so will help. Just find a seat, and read as much or as little
as you'd like when your turn comes around.
Don't worry if you can't pronounce a word--just muscle on through.
If you'd prefer only to listen, feel free to pass the reading off to the next person.
Free and open to the public.
Light refreshments and apples will be provided.
If you have one, bring your copy of Paradise Lost; if not, extra copies will be available.
