DIGESTING THEM UNDER PROPER HEADS
EXPLANATORY NOTES, AND SIMILAR PASSAGES,
BY WILLIAM DODD, L.L.D.
LATE OF CLARE-HALL, CAMBRIDGE.
The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling,
Doth glance from heav'n to earth, from earth to heav'n,
And, as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
Turns them to shape, and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name. See Mid.Night's Dr. vol. 1. p. 232.
