Sunday School: Paradise Lost
‘The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.’
― John Milton, Paradise Lost
Described by BBC Culture as ‘the greatest epic poem in the English Language’, Paradise Lost continues to be an influence for writers, artists, filmmakers and heavy metal bands today but it’s not for everyone ... or is it?
In a day-long session, The Reader’s founder and director, Jane Davis, invites you to explore passages from the book together, through Shared Reading. We’ll take it slow, pausing to ask questions and helping each other through the challenging bits.
This workshop is recommended for anyone who is curious about what makes this work such a masterpiece and for Volunteer Reader Leaders thinking of trying something more challenging with a group.
You can find Paradise Lost on the Reader Bookshelf as part of our annual theme of light and darkness.
A lunch of soup will be provided as well as tea and coffee available throughout the day.
