Campus Classics

Oct-Nov 2008

For each Penguin Classics Newsletter we invite a professor to share an experience of teaching with a Penguin Classic. For a major lecture and reading in honor of the 400th anniversary of the birth of John Milton, Dr. Michael Haykin chose the Penguin Classics edition of Milton's Selected Poems.

"In essence this edition was chosen since it provides an excellent overview of Milton's poetic corpus in terms of the selections chosen and as such is a perfect entry-point into the appreciation of his writings, both for newcomers to his poetry and even veteran readers."
