Paradise Lost: Sing Heav’nly Muse…

This is the very beginning of the poem. Milton invites the Heav’nly Muse to embark with him on an adventure–an adventurous song–and really, I couldn’t help but let myself get carried away by his enchanting words.

    1. It was the same for me at first, yeah. With the unusual spelling and many references, the text was, undoubtedly, much harder than Shakespeare, at least for me=D What I found helpful is reading a chunk of it, then stopping and asking myself whether it was clear enough. If not, I’d reread it a few times and notice the details I’d missed, some quaint expressions and so on. I spent almost two days going through Book 1, real slow and concentrated, but once I got accustomed to the text, the rest started flowing easily. And the beautiful language that you start uncovering as you read is amazing; I’ll be posting a lot of my favorite quotes from Paradise Lost in the next few days, maybe you’ll be inspired to read it=)
