1748 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Milton

Philomathes, "To be put under Milton's Tomb in Westminster Abbey" Gentleman's Magazine 18 (March 1748) 134.



Frown not, ye royal shades, that Milton's name
Among your sacred tombs a place does claim,
Great Brunswick reigns, whose throne's on freedom rais'd,
He, like Augustus, can hear Catoes prais'd.
