Even though Milton isn't mentioned, this *NYT* article by Armand Marie Leroi on
digitizing the humanities will be of interest to Miltonists:

I've attempted a summary and critique of Leroi's scientistic interpretation
of the (obviously useful) digitizing enterprise:

I'm happy to enjoy the fruits of data mining and quantification in the
humanities, but I can't see the humanities becoming a science.
