This website was created to accompany a paper by George Klawitter. The paper, entitled "John Martin's Revolution and Grandeur: A New Direction for Milton's Early Illustrators," was delivered at the South-Central Renaissance Conference in St. Louis (March 1996) and published in the journal Explorations in Renaissance Culture (1998, pages 91-117). John Martin was a distinguished artist in the line of those who illustrated Paradise Lost.
