A year after the 400th birthday of Milton, we focused on Robert Bridges (1844-1930) and his best-selling Milton’s Prosody. We were joined by graduate students and faculty from Princeton, Rutgers, and Columbia. Milton’s Prosody was published in its most well-known form in 1901 alongside William Stones’ On the Use of Classical Metres in English in 1901. We discussed Bridges’s claims for English verse alongside his own experiments with classical versification based on Stone’s model. We read the introductory poem to Bridges’s 1929 The Testament of Beauty, written in his invented form “Neo-Miltonic Syllabics,” as well as experimental poems published in New Poems, 1921. We discussed the influence of classical verse forms, the long shadow of Milton’s verse, and how Bridges’s work in classical translation influenced his development of his “Neo-Miltonic” verse line.
