Excerpt from Milton's Ode on the Morning of Christ's Nativity, L'allegro, IL Penseroso and Lycidas

Young, a Scotchman, who subsequently became Master of Jesus College, Cambridge. More important still, Milton grew up in the stimulating atmosphere of cultured home-life. This was a signal advantage. Most men do not realise that the word 'culture' signifies anything very definite or desirable before they pass to the University, but for Milton home-life meant from the first broad interests, refinement and the easy, material prosperity under which the literary habit is best developed. In 1625 he left St Paul's. He was not a precocious genius, a 'boy poet,' of the type represented by Chatterton and Shelley. He had not even produced school exercises of unusual merit. He had, however, done something of infinitely superior import: he had laid the foundation of that far-ranging knowledge which makes Paradise Lost unique for sweep of suggestion, diversity of association, and corn plexity of interests.
