Marathon Milton Reading

Hundreds of  students, faculty, administrators, and community members joined us to read Paradise Lost in its entirety — all ten thousand lines — from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on March 29.

Tom Lux writes that “there is a symphony / in blind, blind Milton’s poem.” Thanks to everyone who took part in the symphony:
