Egad! We were just talking about Milton’s “Paradise Lost” this evening – over a chicken pasta dinner that kinda sucked. I said I studied Milton in 1967 and didn’t understand a f**ing word, except for the final lines re Adam and Eve:
They hand in hand with wandring steps and slow,
Through Eden took thir solitarie way.
I have lived my life with those lines in my head… Thanks for the Lines if the Day… You’ve made me excited and want to live again!!! For yet another adventure!
Thanks dude. Happy to help.
Milton was truly great. And the first two parts of Paradise Lost are amazing.
It’s an astonishing poem. So glad you appreciate it 🙂
