Best of BBC poetry week

BBC iPlayer - Armando Iannucci in Milton's Heaven and Hell
(UK only, for a limited time)

Here is not somebody who can make exciting what is boring - which you may classify as evil, after listening to the first ten minutes of this - but rather a great advocate giving an undeniable argument to a jury. I got the tip-off from Newsnight Review, and sure enough this is an inspirational introduction to Paradise Lost, which I will now have to go and read, having ho-hummed through bits of it in school.
