MILTON AND THE ROMANTICS
The English Department of Northeastern University is pleased to announce renewed publication of the journal Milton and the Romantics. The journal, originally under the editorship of Luther Scales at Georgia Southern College, will resume publication under the editorship of Stuart Peterfreund and Arthur J. Weitzman. The appearance of Volume Four is scheduled for January 1980. Thereafter both title and format will be changed.
Some of the changes in format will be evident in the first issue. These include consolidating the previous editorial and advisory boards to one editorial board, expanded from seven to eight members. In addition, content will be expanded to 32 pages with hopes of doubling that in future volumes. The first number will be issued on an annual basis and thereafter twice a year.
The scope of future volumes will be broadened to include all aspects of the Romantic sense of the past. The first issue will mark a transition from the relationship of the Romantics to Milton to the relationship of Romanticism to the idea of the past generally. After the January 1980 issue, the journal will expand its focus to include the psychological and linguistic[e] as well as the historical past. In keeping with plans to broaden the scope of the journal, the attention to English Romanticism will be expanded to encompass European Romanticism.
The subscription cost for Milton and the Romantics is $2.00 per issue.
