CHAPTER VII
SEVENTEENTH CENTURY - PURITANS AND CAVALIERS I

to school daily, had also tutors at home, and made it his regular practice to study until midnight. He entered Cambridge at sixteen, not the ideal bookworm by any means, for he was so beautiful that he was nicknamed the " Lady of Christ's College."
While Miltorn was still a student, he wrote his Hymn on the Morning of Christ's Nativity, a most exquisite Christmas poem. The stanzas are perfect wherein his learning serves only for adornment and his mind is full of the thought of the Christ Child ; but some of those toward the end of the poem, which are a little weighed down by his learning, have less charm. This poem, one of Milton's earliest as it was, has a kind of unearthly sweetness of melody and clearness of vision. It seems to have come from another world ; to have been written in a finer, rarer atmosphere. The feeling deepens on reading L'Allegro, IZ Penseroso, the masque Colnus, and Lycidas, all composed within six years after Milton left the university and while he was devoting himself to music and study at his father's country home. He was only twenty-nine when the last of these poems was written. The first two, whose titles may be translated " The Cheerful Man " and " The Thoughtful Man," are descriptions, not of nature, but of the way nature affects the poet when he is in different moods. It is interesting to compare Milton's work with that of earlier times. In L'Allegro he writes :

Mountains on whose barren breast
The labouring clouds do often rest :
Meadows trim with daisies pied ;
Shallow brooks and rivers wide:
Towers and battlements it sees
Bosomed high in tufted trees.
