Through *Milton Revealed*" in *Digital Milton, * ed. David Currell and
Islam Issa,  Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, pp. 225-43.

*Digital Milton *is the first volume to investigate John Milton in terms of
our digital present. It explores the digital environments Milton now
inhabits as well as the diverse digital methods that inform how we read,
teach, edit, and analyze his works. Some chapters use innovative
techniques, such as processing metadata from vast archives of early modern
prose, coding Milton’s geographical references on maps, and visualizing
debt networks from literature and from life. Other chapters discuss the
technologies and platforms shaping how literature reaches us today, from
audio books to e Readers, from the OED Online to Wikipedia, and from
Twitter to YouTube. *Digital Milton* is the first say on a topic that will
become ever more important to scholars, students, and teachers of early
modern literature in the years to come.

This book gives visibility and coherence to editorial, curatorial,
data-driven, networked, and student-centred scholarship on Milton in
digital environments. It reflects upon the history of digital engagements
with Milton, places these engagements within the wider context of the
methodological revolutions of the ‘digital turn’ in literary studies and
the humanities more broadly, and exemplifies original and cutting-edge work
at the intersection of Milton and the digital.  It also eflects the variety
of exciting approaches taken within this field.
