So Dryden, not contented with the fame
Of his own works, though an immortal name!
To lands remote sends forth his learned muse
The noblest seeds of foreign wit to choose;
Feasting our sense so many various ways;
Say, is ’t thy bounty or thy thirst of praise,
That by comparing others, all might see
Who most excell’d are yet excell’d by thee?”]
