Note that the John Donne Society has a message board ("Online Forum") on their
website at http://johndonnesociety.tamu.edu/.  Although many members of the JDS
are also Miltonists, the persons who could speak to your question are not
necessarily reading this listserv, so you might consider posting a question
there.  It seemed to be slow over the summer, but it may have sped up again.


Quoting Gregory Machacek <Gregory.Machacek at marist.edu>:

> The Donne Variorum notes on the "Full nakedness . . . " passage do not
> mention Prudentius Silentiarius, nor does the "Classical Borrowings and
> Literary Influences" section that precedes the poem.  That's not to say
> that the critics cited in the notes don't somewhere in their books/articles
> make mention of the possible source, but one would think that would be the
> sort of thing that the Variorum editors would have noticed, particularly in
> the "borrowings" section.  So you've probably got a note, at least, and
> perhaps a full article
