This volume consists of fourteen original essays that showcase the latest thinking about John Milton's emergence as a popular and canonical author. Contributors consider how Milton positioned himself in relation to the book trade, contemporaneous thinkers, and intellectual movements, as well as how his works have been positioned since their first publication. The individual chapters assess Milton's reception by exploring how his authorial persona was shaped by the modes of writing in which he chose to express himself, the material forms in which his works circulated, and the ways in which his texts were re-appropriated by later writers. The Milton that emerges is one who actively fashioned his reputation by carefully selecting his modes of writing, his language of composition, and the stationers with whom he collaborated. Throughout the volume, contributors also demonstrate the profound impact Milton and his works have had on the careers of a variety of agents, from publishers, booksellers, and fellow writers to colonizers in Mexico and South America.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Making Milton features an impressive range of essays by well-established and emerging Miltonists ... The collection is unique in its consideration of Milton's complete oeuvre and the mutually beneficial relationships Milton enjoyed with his publishers, peers, and readers ... an important, timely contribution to Milton studies. * P. E. Phillips, CHOICE *
This is a capacious and varied collection that touches on many different aspects of Milton's life and legacy ... the volume offers an opportunity to reflect on the nature of authorship and to admire the fluidity and plurality of a writer who made a strong claim to integrity and singularity. * Jason Scott-Warren, Review of English Studies *
