The Milton prose, not the band, or the Symphony X album...
I remember trudging through this in my freshman year English elective, and at the time I was more focused on keggers, college chicks and skipping my 8:30 class than I was in 17th century poetry.
Has anyone come across a good modernized version of it? I picked up a "plain english" version a couple of years ago and it was abysmal. I'd like to revisit the tale itself, but don't really feel up to the tedious mental gymnastics required to re-read the original.
I know there are some pretty killer versions of stuff like this out there, like this fucking awesome retelling of Dante's Inferno:

But haven't come across one for PL that wasn't just some dude trying to explain line-by-line what he thinks Milton was actually saying.
