Seite 39 - Muse employ'd her Tasso's art ! How have I trembled, when at Tancred's stroke, Its gushing blood the gaping cypress pour'd ! When each live plant with mortal accents spoke, And the wild blast...

Seite 129 - Jerusalem is seated on two hills Of height unlike, and turned side to side, The space between a gentle valley fills, From mount to mount expansed fair and wide; Three sides are sure...
Seite 39 - ... families. Spenser more than once insinuates, that the soul of Chaucer was transfused into his body ; and that he was begotten by him two hundred years after his decease. Milton has acknowledged to me, that Spenser was his original ; and many besides myself have heard our famous Waller own, that he derived the harmony of his numbers from Godfrey of Bulloigne, which was turned into English by Mr. Fairfax.
