of Milton's classic poem has been written by Prof Dennis Danielson
in an effort to help make it available to a wider audience, if they find the original language too difficult. Apparently he wasn't
the first to think of it
, but considers his a translation
rather than a retelling, and it is printed as a dual edition / parallel text.so, useful pedagogical tool, or evidence that we're forgetting how to read?
