讲座内容概况:

    To begin with, John Milton’s Paradise Lost is the best and greatest long poem in English. What was the background of its production? What was the Weltanschauung like at the time in England and Europe? Why would Milton be considered, in the American critic and scholar Harold Bloom’s term, a representative “strong poet”? What kind of experiments with poetic forms did Milton carry out, in preparation for the composition of his magnum opus? What accounts for his generic choice of writing it in the epic form? What is the structure of Paradise Lost? What is Milton’s power of descriptive art displayed in the work? And finally, why do we need to read the work as a student of English? These are some of the questions to be asked and considered in the talk.
