A little bored this summer? Maybe you should read some epics to liven things up!
Ovid’s Metamorphoses explains the origins of many things we see in real life, even the presence of spiders! In Dante’s Vita Nuova and Inferno, Dante expresses his love for Beatrice, who eventually leads him to heaven.
Milton’s Paradise Lost is an extension of the biblical story of Adam and Eve. You might be surprised; many readers pity Satan after reading this text! All these epics are available at the Johns Hopkins libraries! Follow the links above to get them.
And be sure to check out the video below. Happy reading!
