Marissa Greenberg’s article, “Milton Much Revolving” was recently published in Modern Language Quarterly (MLQ) in the fall (doi:10.1215/00267929-3898246). Her essay, through an examination of John Milton’s imagery of revolution, seeks to challenge conventional associations of Milton and periodization with teleological culmination and inaugural disruption. The essay is part of a larger book project which was accepted for presentation at the March 2018 Folger Shakespeare Library seminar, “Image and Knowledge in Early Modern Books.” Greenberg is one of 16 scholars selected to present at the seminar which will examine the ways in which images in early modern books participated in the production and circulation of knowledge ca. 1450–1800.
Professor Greenberg’s scholarship and teaching encompasses the literature and culture of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England. Her work focuses on theater and performance in the writings of Shakespeare, Milton, and their contemporaries and the relationship between cultural and literary forms.
