On November 20, 2009, the 12th annual Milton Marathon, an all-day open mic reading of John Milton's "Paradise Lost," took place in the Special Collections Conference room of the Main Library. The reading of Milton's great epic about the creation of the world and the fall of humanity began at 8:00 a.m. and ended at approximately 8:15 p.m. Considered one of the greatest poems in the English language, and perhaps our most compelling poetic expression of intellectual freedom, "Paradise Lost" has influenced virtually every area of modern culture, including literature, music, art, film, voice recordings, and even computer games. The reading was open to the public and attendees were encouraged to take turns reading brief passages or just to take advantage of an opportunity to hear this poem read aloud. The Milton Marathon was supported by the Department of English, the College of Humanities, Marlys H. Witte, the W.W. Norton Publishing Company, and The University of Arizona Libraries.

Customer Reviews

Terrible sound quality, variable readers

The sound quality throught is abysmal, as if recorded on the cellphone of someone in the audience. Even worse, if you download via the GET ALL option, the track sequence gets screwed up and there doesn't seem to be a way to reorder them. As far as I know, most of the readers aren't professional actors, and it shows. The quality of the readings varys widely. For a more coherent and sonically superior presentation I recommend the unabridged Lesser recording on Naxos, though it is rather expensive.
