The Bottomless Bottle of Beer - Listed in Milton Revealed Website!
The website Milton Revealed is an online project initiated by Emeritus Professor Hugh Macrae Richmond, who serves as director, and hosted by U.C. Berkeley. The aims are described as follows:
Milton Revealed is a collaborative project to collect audio-visual materials related to John Milton and his work, to re-examine his relation to theatricality, and to develop teaching approaches to Milton that use performance across a variety of media. Our principal concern is to enhance the appeal of Milton to a broad audience by such dynamic approaches of all kinds.How does my novella fit with these aims? It serves as one instance of "Bibliographies: 2. Milton's Creative Influence":
Hodges, Horace Jeffery. The Bottomless Bottle of Beer. Kindle Edition. Terrance Lindall, illustrator. New York: The Williamsburg Circle, July 20, 2013.I didn't realize until now that my novella with Lindall's illustrations had made this list maintained by Professor Brendan M. Prawdzik for Professor Richmond and his Milton Revealed project! This implies a degree of acceptance by the scholarly world that the story is considered Miltonic . . .
