Seite 371 - But dreadfully from above thundered the father of gods and men ; whilst beneath Neptune shook the boundless earth and the lofty summits of the mountains. The roots and all the summits of many-rilled Ida were shaken, and the city of the Trojans, and the ships of the Greeks.

He proceeded to drive over the billows, and the monsters of the deep * sported beneath him on all sides from their recesses, nor were ignorant of their king. For joy the sea separated ; and they flew very rapidly, nor was the brazen axle moist beneath.
Seite 269 - I may chastise thee with stripes. Dost thou not remember when thou didst swing from on high, and I hung two anvils from thy feet, and bound a golden chain around thy hands, that could not be broken ? And thou didst hang in the air and clouds, and the gods commiserated thee throughout lofty Olympus ; but standing around, they were not able to release thee; but whomsoever I caught, seizing, I hurled from the threshold [of heaven], till he reached the earth, hardly breathing.
Seite 37 - Say first, for Heav'n hides nothing from thy view, Nor the deep tract of Hell, say first what cause Mov'd our grand parents in that happy state...
Seite 151 - BOOK THE NINTH. ARGUMENT. By advice of Nestor, Agamemnon sends Ulysses, Phoenix, and Ajax, to the tent of Achilles to sue for a reconciliation. Notwithstanding the earnest appeal of Phoenix, their errand proves fruitless. THUS the Trojans indeed kept guard : but a mighty...
