Some Miltonic goings on in the press:
AN Wilson writes about Why Milton is the Father of Modernity.
Stanley Fish on a new prose(?!) translation of Milton's Paradise Lost, that he rather likes, but I don't understand the need for. However, the translation is published as a parallel edition, with the prose on one page facing Milton's verse on the other, so I guess the prose just acts as a crib. Why then call it a translation, I'm not sure.
Boyd Tonkin looks at the still controversial legacy of Milton.
John Crace on Milton as a neologist.
And Jennifer Howard on a Milton Marathon, in which participants read out loud the entire Paradise Lost, at St Olaf College in Minnesota. Too late, I realized I should have organized a Milton Marathon here in Philly. Oh well, next Quadricentennial.
