Page 60 - Aquelle, que despois a fez Rainha, As espadas banhando, e as brancas flores, Que ella dos olhos seus regadas tinha, Se encarniçavam, fervidos e irosos, No futuro castigo não cuidosos.
Page 316 - Mercury, And vaulted with such ease into his seat As if an angel dropp'd down from the clouds, To turn and wind a fiery Pegasus, And witch the world with noble horsemanship.

I strive in vain : in dreams, in dreams, The radiance of thy glance upon me beams ; No star has met My gaze for years whose beauty doth not shine, Whose look of speechless love is not like thine.

Page 23 - ... frightened with a dismal howling cry of a woman from above, and imagined the monster to be there : but quickly rousing up his courage, he drew his sword, and having reached the top, * This most romantic and interesting rock is crowned by a pingularly quaint structure, half monastic and half castellated.
Page 72 - ... appeared at an interval of generations and centuries from the actors, and the circumstances connected with the events. The drama has generally been acted and concluded before the curtain that concealed the machinery has been raised, or the costume assumed by the performers has been laid aside. Here we have the full revelation of events in progress — of objects yet in prospect only — the interpretation of facts of the deepest import not understood before — and the full developement of vast...
Page 56 - Pois o nao tens a morte escura della: Mova-te a piedade sua e minha, Pois te nao move a culpa, que nao tinha.
