Milton in America

40th Convention, Northeast Modern Language  Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009
Boston,  Massachusetts

This panel, titled after the novel by Peter Ackroyd,  solicits papers dealing 
with the influence and reception of the English poet  John Milton in the 
United States.  Papers may treat of Milton’s influence  on particular authors, 
composers, and artists, including (but not limited to)  Phillis Wheatley, Herman 
Melville, Helen Keller, Clifford Odets, Charles Ives,  Malcolm X, Jamaica 
Kincaid, or Mark Morris.  Papers may likewise deal with  the American reception of 
the poet in relation to broader themes: freedom of the  press, 
transcendentalism, Hollywood, the ivory tower, and so on.  The  question underlying this 
panel of speakers concerns the extent to which Milton  can be said to be the most 
American of British authors.
