Sixth International Milton Symposium
The Sixth International Milton Symposium will be held
at the University of York, in York, England. The University of York was
home to C. A. Patrides and the nurturer of Gordon Campbell, among other
well-respected Milton scholars. An international committee, by secret ballot,
chose York from amongst those European institutions which submitted proposals.
