Milton Across Borders and Media is an unprecedented collaboration that demonstrates the breadth of John Milton's international reception across diverse media from the seventeenth century through today. This volume presents new essays on the adaptation of Milton's works into various languages and media around the world.
Part I poses questions about how we can effectively situate and engage with Milton's works within the multimedia networks of the present day. Part II 'Interlingual Borders' keys in on the cultural, technological, and temporal elements of interlingual translation that make them intersemiotic. Part III 'Verbal Borders' features media that draw out the themes and characters of Milton's writing through verbal expression. Part IV focuses on the transference of Milton's verbal artwork into visual
artwork, from book illustration to stained glass. Part V 'Auditory Media' extends the focus on multimedia, with aural media as the chief feature.
