"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.

Dear Colleagues:

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.
