John Milton's Drama of Paradise Lost: Section 3: Satan manipulates his cohorts into assigning to him the heroic role of subverting Earth, God's newest creation. On his way he meets his lover, Sin, and his son by her, Death, and he converts them to his cause against God.
The epic was first conceived by Milton as a play, as staged here in the Maude Fife Room by the U.C.B. Shakespeare Program. The two-hour production is partly recorded in "Milton by Himself" distributed by Films for the Humanities, and fully in the video gallery on this site.
