Seite 166 - Contemning laws, and trampling on the right. The cave we found, but vacant all within (His flock the giant tended on the green) : But round the grot we gaze ; and all we view, In order...

Seite 439 - CYLLENIUS now to Pluto's dreary reign Conveys the dead, a lamentable train ! The golden wand, that causes sleep to fly, Or in soft slumber seals the wakeful eye, That drives the ghosts to realms of night or day, Points out the long uncomfortable way.
Seite 442 - That wide th' extended Hellespont surveys; Where all, from age to age, who pass the coast, May point Achilles' tomb, and hail the mighty ghost. Thetis herself to all our peers proclaims Heroic prizes and exequial games; The gods assented; and around thee lay Rich spoils and gifts that blaz'd against the day.
