A talk by J. B. Broadbent on 'Paradise Lost,' Book 4, 172-340
The passage is read in three sections by Carleton Hobbs

For many attentive readers in the last generation or so, Milton has been the great outsider of poetry. His verse has seemed insensitive, lacking in true inner life, mechanical in its mode of operation. There have been signs lately of a revival of interest, but there can be no real ' rediscovery ' of his major work without a better understanding of his conception of poetry.
