"Epigram on Milton" by John Dryden

Three Poets, in three distant Ages born,
Greece, Italy, and England did adorn.
The First in loftiness of thought surpassed;
The Next in Majesty; in both the Last.
The force of Nature could no farther go:
To make a third she joined the former two.

(The three poets are Homer, Virgil, and Milton)

What are the points Dryden is trying to make about Milton?
