    Among the COURT WITS' poetry, what is the role of Etherege?
    Perhaps, his poetical legacy is not of long-range impact, but what about... if he is compared to Sedley's 'Not, Celya [...]', Sackville's 'Dorinda's sparkling wit [...]', even Wilmot's poems?

To a Very Young Lady

Sweetest bud of beauty, may
No untimely frost decay
Th' early glories which we trace
Blooming in thy matchless face:
But kindly opening, like the rose,
Fresh beauties every day disclose,
Such as by Nature are not shown
In all the blossoms she has blown:
And then, what conquest shall you make,

[Hata Bildir]
