John Milton
- English Poet and Writer, 1608-1674 -

"That barbarian who makes a long commentary on the first chapter of Genesis in ten books of rough verse? That crude imitator of the Greeks, who disfigures the Creation, and who, instead of representing the Eternal Being creating the universe with His words, makes the Messiah take a big compass from the cupboard of heaven to draw up a plan of His work?"
-Voltaire, Candide.
