John Milton

Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:
http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2012-12/11/content_2309932.htm

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Do you know anything about "Paradise Lost" or its characters--God and Satan, Adam, and Eve?
2. Milton knew a lot of languages: Latin, Italian, Greek, Hebrew, French, Spanish, Dutch, and Old English, in addition to English. How do you think this helped make him "a brilliant ... master of English letters"?
3. Becky says, "Education ain't what it used to be." Do you think it was better in the old days, or now? Why do you think so?
