I just wanted to let you know that a new on-line journal is now available, Latch: A Journal for the Study of Literary Artifact in Theory, Culture, or History, that features three articles related to Milton studies, accesssible at www.openlatch.com. One of the pieces is my own article, “Yesterday’s Eve and Her Electric Avatar: Villiers’s Debt to Milton’s Paradise Lost.” The others include William Engel’s “John Milton’s Recourse to Old English: A Case-Study in Renaissance Lexicography,” and William Silverman’s “Paradise Lost and the Cultural Genetics of Shame, Remorse, and Guilt.”
