Milton May — All apologies.

May 26, 2011


Here we may reign secure, and in my choice
to reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.

(John Milton. Paradise Lost, Book 1: 261-263.)

Sorry, John Milton fans. Miltonians? Miltonites? Miltoniacs. You feeling that? Anyway, I dropped the ball on Milton May so we’ll have to extend the focus in to “John Milton June.” Consider this a preview of coming attractions.
