Dear Margaret,
If you sent in an early registration form before we decided on the  
banquet, your registration will be switched automatically (if you  
chose the now nonexistent boat ride). If the registration forms are  
available for me to look at, I'll check the next time I'm at the IES  
offices. We met the director for "Samson Agonistes" last week and the  
casting is proceeding now, and plans for the concert are well advanced  
(we need to have a program by the end of the month for the Barbican  
leaflet advertising the concert). See you at IMS9 if not before.
Quoting "Arnold, Margaret" <mjarnold at ku.edu>:

>  I'm not sure it was one of the original choices.  We definitely

> Agonistes."
> Many thanks,

> Dear colleagues,
> Here is an update on the forthcoming International Milton Seminar
> (IMS9) in London, 6-11 July 2008. We have decided to include a
> conference banquet on the evening of Thursday, 10 July, instead of the
> boat ride down the Thames originally planned. The banquet will be at
> the Imperial Hotel, overlooking Russell Square, at £31 per person.
> Other fringe events with extra charges include "Milton in Music", a
> concert of settings of Milton by Handel and other composers peformed
> by the Apollo Chamber Orchestra and soloists on Tuesday evening at St
> Giles Cripplegate (the church where Milton is buried), £15; and (as
> alternatives, since they are both scheduled on Wednesday afternoon) a
> semi-staged reading of "Samson Agonistes" at St Giles Cripplegate, £8;
> and a coach trip to Milton's cottage in Chalfont St Giles, £12. The
> conference fee is £135 for those registering on or before 15 May 2008
> and £145 afterwards. We strongly recommend early registration, since
> the fringe events (other than the conference dinner) are open to the
> public, and tickets will go on public sale after 15 May. Plenary
> speakers include Ian Archer, Stanley Fish, Achsah Guibbory, Geoffrey
> Hill (reading his recent poems), Ann Hughes, Laura Knoppers, Nicholas
> von Maltzahn, John Rumrich, Regina Schwartz, anbd Quentin Skinner, and
> there will also be a lecture, open to the public, by Annabel Patterson.
> Registration forms, in Word or PDF format, can be downloaded from the
> website of the Institute of English Studies, http://ies.sas.ac.uk   
> <http://ies.sas.ac.uk/> . Go
> to the website, and then to "events" and "conferences", with a link to
> the registration forms. There is also information about hotels and
> other accommodations in London on the IES website. It promises to be
> an excellent conference, and I look forward to seeing many of you there.
> Best wishes,
