Milton berates the Irish for "rejecting the ingenuity of all other Nations to improve and waxe more civill by a civilizing Conquest." (10) Indeed the "Irish Barbarians" proved themselves "indocible and averse from all Civility and amendment," and have upheld their own "absurd and savage Customes before the most convincing evidence of reason and demonstration: a testimony of their true Barbarisme and obdurate wilfulnesse" (CPW 3:304).
