Paradise Lost Book 4 Satan's Soliloquy Analysis | Dr. Joe Meyer #30

In this extemporaneous reading of Satan's soliloquy from Book 4 of John Milton's Paradise Lost, we take a look at some of the more intriguing lines that show just how much Satan suffers under the weight of his own shame. I hope this solo episode helps to enrich some of the conversations that we are having on the podcast with my guests. Oftentimes, I'll bring up Milton's Satan in a conversation, so I thought I might just do a video on how I read the character. It's one of the greatest poems ever written in the English language, and I highly recommend people read through it at least once--if for no other reason than to just let your mind absorb the sublime language and elevated thoughts that Milton uses throughout. It's truly an amazing work.
