Seite 96 - Tramp! tramp! along the land they rode, Splash! splash! along the sea; The scourge is red, the spur drops blood, The flashing pebbles flee, 'Hurrah! hurrah! well ride the dead; The bride, the bride, is come; And soon we reach the bridal bed, For, Helen, here's my home...
Seite 455 - I am grieved that you never met Coleridge : all other men whom I have ever known are mere children to him, and yet all is palsied by a total want of moral strength. He will leave nothing behind him to justify the opinion of his friends to the world ; yet many of his scattered poems are such, that a man of feeling will see that the author was capable of executing the greatest works.
Seite 159 - O thou that rollest above, round as the shield of my fathers! Whence are thy beams, O sun! thy everlasting light? Thou comest forth, in thy awful beauty; the stars hide themselves in the sky; the moon, cold and pale, sinks in the western wave. But thou thyself movest alone: who can be a companion of thy course!
Seite 320 - I remember a hurry of pleasure, but I have few distinct forms that people my mind, nor any recollection of delicate or minute feelings which he has either communicated to me, or taught me to recognise.
Seite 374 - That, changed through all, and yet in all the same; Great in the earth, as in the ethereal frame; Warms in the sun, refreshes in the breeze, Glows in the stars, and blossoms in the trees; Lives through all life, extends through all extent; Spreads undivided, operates unspent!

Seite 223 - is, I think, the clumsiest attempt at German sublimity I ever saw.
Seite 462 - Coleridge and I have often talked of making a great work upon English literature : but Coleridge only talks, and, poor fellow ! he will not do that long, I fear ; and then I shall begin, in my turn, to feel an old man, — to talk of the age of little men, and complain like Ossian. It provokes me when I hear a set of puppies yelping at him, upon whom he, a great good-natured mastiff, if he came up to them, would just lift up his leg and pass on. It vexes and grieves me to the heart, that when he...
Seite 253 - Judging by what I hear and feel, I do not think the 'Oberon' will be popular in England, at least not in Sotheby's translation. It only diverts: it does not kindle the Imagination ; it does not agitate and make the heart beat, like the wonders of Ariosto and Tasso".2) Am 23. Juni weist Taylor nochmals auf
Seite 176 - Diese Mittel sind geheime Weisheitsschulen, diese waren vor allzeit die Archive der Natur und der menschlichen Rechte, durch sie wird der Mensch von seinem Fall sich erholen, Fürsten und Nationen werden ohne Gewalttätigkeit von der Erde verschwinden, das Menschengeschlecht wird dereinst eine Familie, und die Welt der Aufenthalt vernünftiger Menschen werden.
