Milton's Paradise Lost was something new and different when it appeared, and it continues to hold a special place in English Literature. Papers should examine Paradise Lost's cultural, literary or stylistic legacy for literature since its publication, and the impact of this legacy on individual works as well as larger literary movements and trends. I am particularly interested in papers that examine literary works that have forwarded specific ideas or characters from the text.
Abstracts of 500 words should be sent to the contact email by 1 June.
