I agree, too.  And the accompanying text only deepens the impression.  I admire and enjoy Terrance’s other works on Milton, but this one puzzles and appalls me.

We may all have looked, but I would have to agree with Salwa about this portrait. It is appalling.

Dear All,
Maybe I’m too sensitive, or maybe I misinterpreted it, but I’m insulted by Terrance Lindall’s Milton Portrait.
I do wish that such postings do not find their way into our Milton Discussion List. I do appreciate it though that the Wiki source was credited.

Dear Guys:

I credited the Wiki source on my Wordpress site and WIX Site. Thanks for pointing out my sloppiness. At the glorious age of 73 one gets a bit lazy.

I used to be a good scholar, original research, solid reasoning and meticulous crediting. Strong suit was logic. My Milton professor said in praise on my final exam that I still have in my archives,  "Milton would have reasoned thus!" Graduated Magna Cum Laude with double majors and a double minor.

I see Wordpress got over 90 views on that one day. Thanks for looking.
Have you seen my latest Milton Portrait:
