Milton and Myth

Classes or lectures like these make me want to go back to school (almost)!

Milton with Professor John Rogers

It’s been a while since I’ve read Paradise Lost, but don’t we all remember that famous line?

(paraphrase) Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven

I think my five-year-old told me that after I asked her to clean her room.

I’ve always been interested in poetry and literature dealing with philosophy, religion, and mythology. Do you think that’s part of what drives a fantasy author?
