Seite 4 - Th' inscription value, but the rust adore : This, the blue varnish, that, the green endears, The sacred rust of twice ten hundred years.
Seite 37 - Helpless, tho' fresh, and wanting to be led. The green stem grows in stature, and in size, But only feeds with hope the farmer's eyes; Then laughs the childish year with flowrets crown'd, And lavishly perfumes the fields around, But no substantial nourishment receives; Infirm the stalks, unsolid are the leaves. Proceeding onward whence the year began, The Summer grows adult, and ripens into Man. This season, as in men, is most repleat With kindly moisture, and prolifick heat.
Seite 38 - JUSTUM et tenacem propositi virum Non civium ardor prava jubentium, Non vultus instantis tyranni Mente quatit solida, neque Auster, Dux inquieti turbidus Adriae, 5 Nee fulminantis magna manus Jovis : Si fractus illabatur orbis, * Impavidum ferient ruinae.
Seite 63 - twixt Rage and Scorn, From my maim'd Front he tore the stubborn Horn : This, heap'd with Flowers and Fruits, the Naiads bear. Sacred to Plenty, and the bounteous Year.

Seite 454 - The king has humored the genius of the place, and only made use of so much art as is necessary to help and regulate nature without reforming her too much.
Seite 377 - Doric dialect; nor can the majesty of a heroic poem any-where appear so well as in this language, which has a natural greatness in it, and can be often rendered more deep and sonorous by the pronunciation of the lonians. But, in the middle style, where the writers in both tongues are on a level, we see how far Virgil has excelled all who have written in the same way with him. There has been abundance of criticism spent on Virgil's Pastorals...
Seite 272 - And sweeping oars, with struggling, urge their way. The Trojan, from the main, beheld a wood, Which thick with shades and a brown horror stood : Betwixt the trees the Tiber took his course, With whirlpools dimpled; and with downward force, That drove the sand along, he took his way, And roll'd his yellow billows to the sea. About him, and above, and round the wood, The birds that haunt the borders of his flood, That bath'd within, or basked upon his side, To tuneful songs their narrow throats applied....
