1824 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Abraham Cowley

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 2 June 1824; in Table Talk (1884) 38.



Milton's Latin style is, I think, better and easier than his English. His style, in prose, is quite as characteristic of him as a philosophic republican, as Cowley's is of him as a first-rate gentleman.
