Oh gee whiz! Now we are treating poems as though they were third-grade
reports meant to show the teacher how smart the pupil was.

And since Eliot was not half the linguist Shelley was . . . .?

And Milton wrote poems in Latin & Greek as well as English, not to speak of
his polemical essays in Latin.

Really, "peculiarly his own" is probably an empty phrase applied to almost
any poet who ever lived.
