Seite 131 - Thou, nature, art my goddess ; to thy law My services are bound : Wherefore should I Stand in the plague of custom ; and permit The curiosity of nations to deprive me, For that I am some twelve or fourteen moon-shines Lag of a brother? Why bastard? wherefore base? When my dimensions are as well compact, My mind as generous, and my shape as true, As honest madam's issue? Why brand they us With base?
Seite 132 - But I, that am not shaped for sportive tricks, Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass; I, that am rudely stamped, and want love's majesty To strut before a wanton ambling nymph ; I, that am curtail'd of this fair proportion, Cheated of feature by dissembling nature, Deform'd, unfinish'd, sent before my time Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them...
Seite 132 - I, that am curtail'd of this fair proportion, Cheated of feature by dissembling Nature, Deform'd, unfinish'd, sent before my time Into this breathing world scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them...
Seite 132 - Cheated of feature by dissembling nature, Deform'd, unfinish'd, sent before my time Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them; Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace...
Seite 180 - Cast on the wildest of the Cyclad Isles, Where never human foot had mark'd the shore, These ruffians left me — Yet believe me, Areas, Such is the rooted love we bear mankind, All ruffians as they were, I never heard A sound so dismal as their parting oars.
Seite 109 - Like milk the bosom, and the neck of snow ; Round is the neck, and full and large the breast; Where, fresh and firm, two ivory apples grow, Which rise and fall, as, to the margin pressed By pleasant breeze, the billows come and go. Not prying Argus could discern the rest. Yet might the observing eye of things concealed Conjecture safely, from the charms revealed. To all her arms a just proportion bear, And a white hand is oftentimes descried, Which narrow is, and somedeal long ; and where No knot...
Seite 183 - Sollemnis taurum ingentem mactabat ad aras. Ecce autem gemini a Tenedo tranquilla per alta (Horresco referens) immensis orbibus angues Incumbunt pelago, pariterque ad litora tendunt: Pectora quorum inter fluctus arrecta, jubaeque Sanguineae exsuperant undas; pars cetera pontum Pone legit, sinuatque immensa volumine terga. Fit sonitus, spumante salo: jamque arva tenebant, Ardentesque oculos suffecti sanguine et igni Sibila lambebant linguis vibrantibus ora.
Seite 99 - Meanwhile a multitude Was in the forum, where a strife went on, — Two men contending for a fine, the price Of one who had been slain. Before the crowd One claimed that he had paid the fine, and one Denied that aught had been received, and both Called for the sentence which should end the strife.
Seite 36 - ... illi agmine certo Laocoonta petunt, et primum parva duorum corpora natorum serpens amplexus uterque implicat et miseros morsu depascitur artus; post ipsum auxilio subeuntem ac tela ferentem corripiunt spirisque ligant ingentibus: et iam bis medium amplexi, bis collo squamea circum terga dati superant capite et cervicibus altis.
Seite 109 - Di persona era tanto ben formata, quanto me' finger san pittori industri ; con bionda chioma lunga et annodata: oro non è che più risplenda e lustri. Spargeasi per la guancia delicata misto color di rose e di ligustri; di terso avorio era la fronte lieta, che lo spazio finia con giusta meta.
