Talk:John Dryden

From Conservapedia

One of the great poets and writers of English deserves more than a dozen or so words referenced by an American desktop "encyclopedia". I don't really know where to start with Dryden. I could come in via Handel (War, he sung, is toil and trouble, honour but an empty bubble...if the world be worth thy winning think oh think it worth enjoying. Handel's use of Dryden's words in "Alexander's Feast" are an early eighteenth century peace song.)

Or..."Never was patriot yet but was a fool." Make of it what you will. AlanE (talk) 03:03, 10 April 2017 (EDT)

Okay, now it's something like "more than a dozen or so." I chose to start with his birth, but of course you're welcome to mention Handel, Purcell, or write a brief paean in the introductory text.--Abcqwe (talk) 18:49, 19 April 2017 (EDT)

I don't need to; you've said all that needs to be said. Thank you. AlanE (talk) 20:41, 19 April 2017 (EDT)
