John Milton : Paradise Lost

'There is a pleasant story of how [Aunt Cara] once set a Jebb niece to read "Paradise Lost" aloud to herself and her sister Aunt Polly, in order to improve Aunt Polly's mind. The poor old lady was terribly bored and was nearly asleep, when Aunt Cara woke her up, by saying sternly: "Listen now, Polly; it's Satan speaking".'
