Seite 278 - Wind, gentle ever-green, to form a shade Around the tomb where Sophocles is laid ; Sweet ivy, wind thy boughs, and intertwine With blushing roses and the clust'ring vine : Thus will thy lasting leaves, with beauties hung, Prove grateful emblems of the lays he sung, Whose soul, exalted like a god of wit, Among the Muses and the Graces writ.
Seite 10 - Homerum caecum fuisse: at eiua picturam, non poësin, videmus; quae regio, quae ora, qui locus Graeciae, quae species formaque pugnae, quae acies, quod remigium, qui motus hominum, qui ferarum non ita expictus est, ut quae ipse non viderit nos ut videremus effecerit?
Seite 148 - Sed cum omnia ratione animoque lustraris, omnium societatum nulla est gravior, nulla carior quam ea, quae cum re publica est uni cuique nostrum. Cari sunt parentes, cari liberi, propinqui, familiares, sed omnes omnium caritates patria una complexa est, pro qua quis bonus dubitet mortem oppetere, si ei sit profuturus?
Seite 239 - О sovereign of the willing soul, Parent of sweet and solemn-breathing airs, Enchanting Shell, the sullen Cares And frantic Passions hear thy soft control. On Thracia's hills the Lord of War Has curbed the fury of his car, And dropped his thirsty lance at thy command: Perching on the sceptred hand Of Jove, thy magic lulls the feathered king With ruffled plumes and flagging wing: Quenched in dark clouds of slumber lie The terrors of his beak and lightnings of his eye.
Seite 13 - Pisistrati? qui primus Homeri libros, confusos antea, sic disposuisse dicitur, ut nunc habemus. Non fuit ille quidem civibus suis utilis ; sed ita eloquentia floruit , ut litteris doctrinaque praestaret.
Seite 82 - Caledonian sword Widow'd the north. The children of the slain Come, as I hope, to meet their fathers
Seite 290 - Suck, little wretch, while yet thy mother lives, Suck the last drop her fainting bosom gives: She dies ; her tenderness survives her breath, And her fond love is provident in death.
Seite 85 - Aeschylus protulit, sublimis et gravis et grandiloquus saepe usque ad vitium, sed rudis in plerisque et incompositus ; propter quod correctas eius fabulas in certamen deferre posterioribus poetis Athenienses 67 permiserunt, suntque eo modo multi coronati. Sed longe clarius illustraverunt hoc opus Sophocles atque Euripides, quorum in dispari dicendi via uter sit poeta melior, inter plurimos quaeritur; idque ego sane, quoniam ad praesentem materiam nihil pertinet, iniudicatum relinquo.
Seite 284 - The funeral baked meats Did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables.
Seite 11 - Quam multos scriptores rerum suarum magnus ille Alexander secum habuisse dicitur ! Atque is tarnen, cum in Sigeo ad Achillis tumulum astitisset : ' 0 fortunate,' inquit, ' adu- . lescens, qui tuae virtutis Homerum praeconem inveneris!
