Excerpt from Studies in the Milton Tradition: A Thesis

For neglecting to conform to this degenerate taste of the Restor ation Period, says the introductory paper of The True Patriot,7 Milton himself lay long in Obscurity, and the world had nearly lost the best poem which it hath ever seen. With this general sentiment Horace Walpole is in agreement when he asserts that Milton was forced to wait till the world had done admiring In the Epistle Dedicatory, referred to above, Aaron Hill had spoken plainly of the national disgrace in that some great man of means did not seize the opportunity of rendering himself immortal by a noble patronage of the great Milton. This thought runs through the lines of Moses Mendes, in his Epistle to Mr. S. Tucker (1767)
