John Milton's Paradise Regained with Donald McDonough (two sessions)

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 - 11:00 AM | For members only | Whitridge Room | $25 for both sessions (recommended); $15 per session

To “justify the ways of God to men,” John Milton wrote Paradise Lost, in which the serpent got Eve and Adam exiled from Paradise. His Paradise Regained interprets an Old Testament prophecy given to that successful serpent, now identified with Satan. Frequent seminar leader Donald McDonough introduces Milton's lesser-known epic.
