“It will not be too much to say, that of all uninspired writings, (if their be uninspired,)
Milton's are the most worthy of profound study by all minds which would know the
creativeness, the splendour, the learning, the eloquence, the wisdom, to which the
human intellect can reach.”—Sir Egerton Brydges.

“That fervid Genius, which has cast a sort of shade upon all the other works of
man.”—Lord Ersking.
