Seite 189 - Nothing then was to be heard but the shrieks of women, the screams of children, and the cries of men, some calling for their children, others for their parents, others for their husbands, and only distinguishing each other by their voices ; one lamenting his own fate, another that of his family ; some wishing to die from the very fear of dying; some lifting their hands to the gods ; but the greater part imagining that the last and eternal night was come, which was to destroy the gods and the world...

Seite 354 - L' ossa del corpo mio sarieno ancora In co del ponte presso a Benevento, Sotto la guardia della grave mora. Or le bagna la pioggia e move il vento Di fuor del regno, quasi lungo il Verde, Dov' ei le trasmutò a lume spento.
