Interesting! But I am surprised at Hope’s opening comment, “Dryden’s lines on Milton are not well known.” I beg your pardon? Those lines are, as far as I know, heavily anthologized. I regularly teach them in survey classes.
I would like to know what others think about this opening comment, but I do not want to head off further discussion of more interesting bits later on.
