Reading Milton: Subtleties and Anxieties in Paradise Lost
Šárka Brotánková Tobrmanová, MA (Prague), D.Phil. (Oxford)

The course will be held at the Faculty’s Institute of Translation Studies in Hybernská Street.


This is a close-reading course. It aims to illuminate Milton’s Paradise Lost and show how innovative Milton is in his use of language and poetic form, as well as in his treatment of the simple Genesis story. We shall analyse selected passages and discuss the textual subtleties and anxieties that the text raises, particularly as they relate to Satan, the presentation of God, and Adam and Eve’s union and sexuality.<br>
The course is primarily intended for MA students and 3rd-year BA students, but it is open to anyone who wishes to discover how intricate Milton’s poem is and learn about the greatest epic poet in the English language – a controversial figure whose example and ideas have not ceased to inspire poets, writers and thinkers more than three hundred years after his death.


Students will be required to read about 500-700 lines per week before they attend the class (!) and participate actively in seminar discussions.
Regular attendance (3 absences are tolerated), active participation (50%) and required readings (50%).

MA students of Anglophone Literatures and Cultures will receive 5 credits in return for a final essay of about 3,000 words on a Milton topic of their choice (discussed with the teacher).

MA English Literature, elective seminar, 5 credits - includes a 3,000-word essay
