An excellent resource for PL lovers. <br />

This Audible production succeeds where most modern and not-so-modern treatments of Miltons epic masterpiece fall of into the ditches of either the contempt that sneers from one of the passing grievance -ideologies du Jour that are popular for the decade universities produced ritical thought thought the classics from that passing novelty dated and represented in museums of sociology in the next generation. Not does this treatment fall off into the opposite ditches more common closer to the Poets lifetime by providing mere shallow fawning abortion.
This author provided this lifetime lover of PL with a refreshingly insightful hour of walking through some major elements with observations that can be wonderfully keen and provoke a hearty thirst to again savor the epic itself. I gave 5 stars for the vocal performance( and I stand by all 5 of those stars.)
I recommend this book without reservation. Bought with my own limited cash and we'll worth the purchase.
