MLA Showcase Lecture: The Elephant in Eden

Monday, September 17, 2018

Broadmoor is proud to present the MLA Showcase Lecture Series, in partnership with LSU-S. Tonight's topic is presented by Dr. Elisabeth Liebert.

We've all heard of the serpent in the garden. But why, in his first description of Eden in Paradise Lost does Milton choose to include other animals like the lion, the lynx, and the elephant? This talk reaches backward into early animal encyclopedias and bestiary lore to uncover the complex significance of some of the animals in Milton's Eden.
