In her inaugural lecture, Professor Karen Edwards of the Department of English at the University of Exeter will consider the consequences of the Fall as represented by John Milton in Paradise Lost (1667). Milton’s reputation as a puritan leads readers to expect to find in the poem a severe condemnation of Adam and Eve’s disobedience of God’s command. This lecture asks us to look again at the fruit of eating the fruit.
The event will be followed by a drinks reception from 6:30 – 8:30pm in the Queen’s café.
All are welcome to attend this free lecture. Advance booking is essential. Please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 01392 725494.
