Of Man's first disobedience

What though the field be lost?        
All is not lost—the unconquerable will,
And study of revenge, immortal hate,
And courage never to submit or yield:
And what is else not to be overcome.

BBC 7 Radio is running a dramatization of Milton's Paradise Lost.  It's in 41 parts, 15 minutes each, running 1 episode per day Mon-Fri.  Dennis Quilley narrates and Ian McDiarmid plays Satan. I just listened to the first couple parts and it's very good. The Listen Again option for each episode is good for seven days.
