350 Years of Paradise Lost, A Poem in Twelve Books (1674-2024)
The Milton Society of America will propose a panel at the RSA 2024 that commemorates the 350th anniversary of the second edition of Paradise Lost—the twelve-book version that would become familiar to us and regarded as the great epic poem in the English language. We invite papers on any aspect of the twelve-book Paradise Lost or on the ways its significance has been reshaped between 1674 and now. Topics may include (but are not limited to) the revision of the original ten-book poem, book history, reception history, and adaptation. For consideration, please submit an abbreviated CV and a 200-word abstract to Eric Song at MiltonSocietySec@gmail.com, no later than June 30, 2023.
