Excerpt from State Normal Magazine, Vol. 20: January, 1916
In his Preface to Shakespeare, Samuel Johnson ascribes to the poet's poet equally with the myriad minded Shakespeare the distinction of having first discovered to what degree of smoothness and harmony the English lang... uage could be softened. He it was who brought into the English verse the soft music and sensuous beauty of the Italian romance.
The God-gifted organ-voice of England has spoken of him in his, Areopagitica as our sage and serious Spenser, whom I dare be known to think a better teacher than Scotus or Aquinas.
