[Milton-L] Remembrance

Yes, thank you, Carol.  I will always remember John and Al fondly--they both helped me and encouraged me so much.

Regarding the recent loss of Barbara Lewalski--I had just exchanged emails with her two weeks before. She reported being mentally alert, albeit acknowledging bodily pain.  So her death came as a shock to me.

It is truly amazing for how long she continued to produce excellent and substantive publications.

Some of my favorites include three of her four final Milton pieces--2013 in Milton Studies, and 2015 and 2016 in Milton Quarterly.   These were pieces of metacriticism, the insights of a great scholar addressing important particular themes in Milton, stretching across Milton's canon.  They are words of scholarly wisdom offered after a lifetime of study and reflection, a summation of ideas long ruminated upon, offered by one acutely aware of time's limitations near the conclusion of a storied career.

Thank you, Carol.  Recent loss has stirred memory, and they have been much on my mind.

Please remember John Shawcross and Al Labriola in your thoughts. We lost John today in 2011, and AL on Sunday in 2009.
