Seite 160 - Nor sporting in the dalliance of love, In courts of kings, where state is overturned; Nor in the pomp of proud, audacious deeds, Intends our muse to vaunt his heavenly verse; Only this, gentles, we must now perform, The form of Faustus...
Seite 203 - Coffins stood round, like open presses; That shaw'd the dead in their last dresses; And by some devilish...
