Exciting News For Miltonists

Recently the Townsend Humanities Center at U.C. Berkeley has initiated a site devoted to heightening modern awareness of Milton’s relevance and currency by using audiovisual approaches already successfully used in another UCB site at shakespearestaging.berkeley.edu The Milton site is entitled “Milton Revealed” and can be found here.

The site is now in a very preliminary state including only illustrative items, but will include many Milton-related images as well as videos, including those  already prepared by the English Department, such as the nationally  distributed documentary called “Milton By Himself” and UCB recordings of  performances of “Comus”  and “Paradise Lost.”

Hugh Macrae Richmond is the current Milton Program Director at UCB.
