As the manuscript of the Hymn [Hino Homérico a Deméter] was not apparently know to the world in general until the end of the eighteenth century [foi descoberto em 1777, em Moscovo], the Hymn exercised no influence over Renaissance literature. A paper was once written which endeavoured to identify Milton's debts to the Hymn. This should serve as a waring against the perils of any such attempts to trace literary influences.
