    1. I'm trying to be sincere about understanding the need. The former seems like a lot of unnecessary DOM manipulation at the cost of doing things the MagicSvelteWay™. I promise I'm not trying to be obtuse.

    1. lffhat Johnson is obiecting to,in short, is what he takes to be the essential artificiality of Milton's elegy andthe consequent absence of natural human feeling. The author of l-ycidas,heinsisrs, simply does not sound like a man deeply afflicted with grief- Thepoem is insincere.

      I feel that judging the sincerity of the Lycidas based on Milton's insignificant relationship to King is a bit unfair. I believe this knowledge of their relationship may have tainted Johnson's critical reception. I don't believe fictitious writing in a work of poetry dedicated to a deceased person is automatically grounds for insincerity. I've read about memorials for deceased musicians where those who attended and contributed compositions or material items in the deceased's honor had no personal interaction or close relationship to them. The legacy of the deceased drew other highly-regarded musicians to pay their respects and show their appreciation for the culture that the deceased influenced and contributed to that united them intellectually and emotionally. I feel that the case with Milton's contribution to Justa Edouardo King naufrago is a similar situation.
