Echoes of Paradise: Milton's Epic and the Art of Response

Edited by Dr Ned Allen

Echoes of Paradise is a collection of original poems, music, and essays about the rich and lively afterlives of Paradise Lost, the masterpiece of Christ’s most famous poet, John Milton. Crafted by a local printer and beautifully illustrated, this limited edition draws attention to some of the many artistic forms on which Milton’s poem has left its mark: eighteenth-century satire, fantasy children’s fiction, slave narrative, Victorian painting, radio drama, dictaphones and white noise, and turn-of-the-millenium TV.  

Poems by Jack Belloli, Michael Edwards, Sarah Howe, 
Helen Mort, Ruth Padel, & Rowan Williams 

Music by Edwin Hillier 

Essays by Ned Allen, Jean-Michaël Maugüé, Sophie Read, 
Christopher Ricks & Chris Townsend 

Echoes of Paradise has been edited by Ned Allen, a Fellow in English at Christ’s. Each contributor to the book has a connection to the College – whether as former student, visiting artist, or Fellow – and all proceeds from the book are going to support students at Christ’s.
