My focus is on The Vision as a ‘hypertext’ at the same time replacing and incorporating the Divine Comedy. The ﬁrst important stylistic aspect of The Vision is the use of blank verse, often qualiﬁed as Miltonic by contemporaries and by later critics. As has been shown, earlier translations of the Divine Comedy are characterised by a variety of verse forms. 78 Cowper’s translation of Homer is certainly the most obvious example that directed Cary towards the choice of blank verse. 80 Cowper does not intend to recreate the cadence of the Greek language, but to produce a translation in conformity to the English norms or expectations for epic poetry.
The scheme did not go further, but by 1787 both Cary and Lister had begun to write and translate poetry. Cary’s ﬁrst poems were published in the Gentleman’s Magazine in 1787. ’, the abbreviated form of his nom de plume, ‘Marcellus’. 31 The ode was occasioned by the return to England of the defender of Gibraltar. 33 The volume includes thirty-eight sonnets and three odes: they show Cary’s debt to Seward’s style in their heavy use of poetic diction and personiﬁcations. The correspondence with Seward is interesting in facilitating an understanding of the evolution of Cary’s aesthetics.
In the preface to the translation he instead introduces a distinction between Dante and the English poet: His [Dante’s] solicitude, it is true, to deﬁne all his images in such a manner as to bring them distinctly within the circle of our vision, and to subject them to the power of the pencil, sometimes renders him little better than grotesque, where Milton has since taught us to expect sublimity. 72 These could seem difﬁcult to accommodate in the light of the English approach to the epic and especially by comparison with Paradise Lost.
