Title of book Edit

Is it certain that the title came from a Milton poem? Milton himself got the phrase from Shakespeare's The Tempest (I think Miranda says it), and PTerry is known to have often referenced Shakespeare, most notably in the Lancre Witches series (the title Witches Abroad is definitely a Shakespeare reference). — evilquoll (talk) 02:30, September 19, 2019 (UTC)

Yes, it is clearly from Milton's L'Allegro but you raise a good point regarding the potential origin of the first part of the Milton quote which is worth adding to the page.  I have fleshed that out a bit giving more background.:
