that this turbulent republican, whom they had lo confidently condemned to disgrace and oblivion, would at length become the idol of universal veneration, that the minutest occurrences of his life would be collected with a fond enthusiasın, that his monument would be reared amid the shrines of monarchs, and that his works would be ranked among the highest honours of his country.
I must add one or two more circumstances relating to my revisal of this volume, which, although superficial and extrinsic, are necessary parts of previous information. I have found it expedient to alter or enlarge Milton's own titles, which seemed to want fulness and precision, yet preserving their form and substance. Nor have I scrupulously followed the order used in his own editions, which yet I have not greatly violated. In disturbing the series of the pieces, my meaning was, not to study capricious and useless novelty, but to accommodate the reader, and to introduce uniformity, by a more methodical but obvious arrangement. I have endeavoured to render the text as uncorrupt and perspicuous as possible, not only by examining and comparing the authentic copies published under the author's immediate inspection, but by regulating the punctuation, of which Milton appears to have been habitually careless.
