Seite 110 - tis true I must be here confined by you. Or sent to Naples. Let me not, Since I have my dukedom got And par don d the deceiver, dwell In this bare island, by your spell ; But release me from my bands With the help of your good hands.
Seite 103 - O, wonder ! How many goodly creatures are there here ! How beauteous mankind is ! O brave new world, That has such people in 't ! Pros. 'Tis new to thee.
Seite 26 - Cursed be I that did so ! All the charms Of Sycorax, toads, beetles, bats, light on you ! For I am all the subjects that you have, Which first was mine own king ; and here you sty me In this hard rock, whiles you do keep from me The rest o' th
Seite 65 - The bigger bulk it shows. Hence, bashful cunning! And prompt me, plain and holy innocence ! I am your wife, if you will marry me...
