I never met the man, but loved his writing --even, or maybe especially, when I wanted to disagree with him.  He will be missed no doubt.

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!

Dear all:  John hasn't been doing well, after having suffered a mild stroke a few days ago.  He is in hospice care in Lexington and his nephew is with him.  I'm sure he'll have been glad to be kept in your thoughts.
