"Star-pointing" is also a hyphenated adjective typical of Du Bartas.

It may be worth mention that his use of "star-ypointing" in that poem surely is a light reminder that Milton also read, and read quite extensively, Spenser's poetry--I suspect Milton meant the word to be taken as veiled reference to Spenser.

What evidence is there that Milton had read the poems of Donne, Herbert, and Vaughan? Or those of Marvell?
Happy and productive 2016 to each and all.
