Hello, I'll be teaching Milton's Paradise Lost for the first time this year and have been stressing out over the summer because there's so much background knowledge to be aware of before even reading the poem. And then there's the analysis to tackle. Can anybody give advice/ help on how to go about introducing the text to a group of A Level students? The marking criteria is weighted quite heavily on context. Or any tips as to how to make lessons interesting while studying the poem? Any support would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
