/Miltonists will be very interested in Jan Piggott's new study of the 
artistic impact of Milton's //Comus//:/

//Piggott, Jan. "/Milton's //Comus//: from Text to Stage, the Fine Arts, 
and Book-illustration, c. 1750-1850//."/ [23 illustrations] /British Art 
Journal/XV.2 (Winter 2014-15), 18-32.

This essay reflects the remarkably sustained involvement of the Fine 
Arts with Milton's composition, suggesting an impact fat greater than 
its modest status in literary criticism. Above all it makes clear from 
its artistic reflections that the work has had a sustained performance 
history, which has inspired many of thesetreatments (including 
productions at U.C. Berkeley. See http://miltonrevealed.berkeley.edu). 
The essay should prove to be a required reference for all future 
treatments of the Masque. With best wishes, Hugh Richmond
