MILTON, JOHN
[ Also see Poets ]

Three poets in three distant ages born,
  Greece, Italy, and England did adorn.
    The first in loftiness of thought surpass'd;
      The next, in majesty; in both, the last.
        The force of nature could no further go;
          To make a third, she join'd the former two.
      - John Dryden, Under Mr. Milton's Picture
         (Homer, Virgil, Milton)

Greece boasts her Homer, Rome can Virgil claim;
  England can either match in Milton's fame.
    [Lat., Graecia Maeonidam, jactet sibi Roma Maronem
      Anglia Miltonum jactat utrique parem.]
      - Salvaggi, Ad Joannem Miltonum

That mighty orb of song,
  The divine Milton.
      - William Wordsworth, Excursion
         (bk. I, l. 252)
