Milton in America

Announcing a special issue of University of Toronto Quarterly

 

Milton in America, edited by Paul Stevens and Patricia Simmons, offers a
series of fresh new perspectives on the presence of Milton in American
literature and culture. It seeks to investigate and complicate the received
wisdom implicit in the old claim that 'Milton is more emphatically American
than any author who has lived in the United States.' This important
collection of seven new essays by leading international scholars from
Britain, Canada, and the United States offers insight into both the ways
Milton was re-shaped by his reception into American culture and, conversely,
the ways the great poet's writings often stimulated opposition to
conventional American norms.

University of Toronto Quarterly

Acclaimed as one of the finest journals focused on the humanities,
University of Toronto Quarterly is filled with serious, probing, and
vigorously researched articles spanning a wide range of subjects in the
humanities. Often the best insights in one field of knowledge come through
cross-fertilization, where authors can apply another discipline's ideas,
concepts, and paradigms to their own disciplines. UTQ is not a journal where
one philosopher speaks to another, but a place where a philosopher can speak
to specialists and general readers in many other fields. This
interdisciplinary approach provides a depth and quality to the journal that
attracts both general readers and specialists from across the humanities.

 

Discover Canada's best-kept literary secret! 

Since 1936, University of Toronto Quarterly has devoted an entire issue to
Letters in Canada. This annual winter issue of UTQ offers probing
evaluations of work by Canadian scholars and by international scholars on
Canadian issues. Not restricted by language, reviews include coverage of the
year's creative work by both established and emerging writers in poetry,
fiction, drama, and translation, in both English and French. In recent
years, the Letters in Canada issue has encompassed over 650 pages and
featured the work of more than 200 reviewers, whose informed and thoughtful
reviews provide an extensive record of current research in the humanities in
Canada. The coverage is complemented with notice of work published
internationally on Canadian literature, history, politics, culture, and the
arts.
