Special issue of the award-winning forum for Milton scholarship and criticism, highlighting Milton’s pan-American literary life and afterlife

Traditionally hailed as a champion of various forms of liberty and toleration, and creator of a “new-modeled” Eden, Milton came to occupy a privileged place in genealogies of liberalism, modernity, and the history of revolution against repression. In the decades immediately following the American Revolution alone (1765–1783), Milton’s collected poems were produced in about 28 different Anglo-American editions, and more recently his influence in Latin American writing has been noted. This collection showcases Miltonic encounters within the Americas—early modern to contemporary—and multiple ways of gauging those encounters, surveying how Milton is received, translated, rewritten, and appropriated to speak anew, generating a rich array of literary and critical afterlives throughout the American continents.

ELIZABETH SAUER is professor of English at Brock University and Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. ANGELICA DURAN is professor of English, comparative literature, and religious studies at Purdue University.
