Listening to BBC Radio 7’s adaptation of John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Many more intelligent and better educated people than me have written about Paradise Lost and so I am not going to attempt any analysis. However I would urge anyone who is interested in this to listen. A fifteen minute episode is played every night at 9pm. There are forty one episodes in total, but there will also be an omnibus every Sunday at 8pm. Also don’t forget the BBC’s excellent Listen Again service with the iPlayer. iMairi recommends.
I have also been reading Gutter 02. Gutter is a new magazine on the block, and one so far which I have been enjoying. I have not finished it yet, but I would particularly recommend Art Divided an enjoyable and macabre short story by Anneliese Mackintosh.
