Jenn Lewin,   Thank you for sharing your sad news with the rest of us.  John was 
such a close friend, 

caring person, splendid scholar.  I feel wretchedly bad about his death.  Hee 
leap'd the present age.

I know of Dr Shawcross only through his writing- yes, he is one of the giants.

I feel the same, Lee. He befriended me in an elevator at my first Milton Dinner 
(1970!), and remembered me the very next time. He's been a most wonderful friend 
and colleague over the years. I'm sure there are so many of us who feel immense 
indebtedness and are grateful for the debt!

John is one of those wonderful Miltonists who befriended me when I was a young

very much in my thoughts and prayers.  He is one of our giants.
