Seite 7 - Very likely ; but Agamemnon, even in his tyrannous mood, would hardly give this as a recommendation of such a course; he means, as Herschel makes him say : — " If not, I shall seize on the prize of another ; Thine perchance, or the spoil of Aias or mighty Odysseus. Rage he may, upon whom I shall come ; I reck not his anger.
Seite xv - Sing heav'nly Muse, that on the secret top Of Oreb, or of Sinai, didst inspire That shepherd, who first taught the chosen seed, In the beginning how the heav'ns and earth Rose out of Chaos...
Seite 412 - There the unwearied sun, and the full-orbed moon in their courses, All the configured stars that gem the circuit of heaven, Pleiads and Hyads were there and the giant force of Orion, There the revolving Bear, which the Wain they call, was ensculptured, Circling on high, and in all his courses regarding Orion, Sole of the starry train that descends not to bathe in the ocean.
Seite x - ... first poet of his day, and one of the great masters of English verse. His translation, in rhyming couplets, has held its place in our classical literature for five generations, giving pleasure to unnumbered readers. There are still men of culture who agree with Sir John Herschel's eulogy of it : " Whatever may be said against it, and with all its faults, which are not a few, I, for one, regard Pope's Iliad, taken per se, as one of the most magnificent, if not the most magnificent poem extant.
Seite 539 - ... monarch came, and, approaching, Flung himself down at his feet and embraced the knees of Achilles, Kissing those dread and murderous hands which had slaughtered his children. As when some conscience-stricken wretch, just fresh from a murder, Flies to a foreign land, and in some conspicuous mansion Refuge claims, its inmates aghast behold his arrival : Such the dismayed surprise of Achilles, Priam beholding, Such the amaze of those around, as they looked at each other, While at his feet illustrious...
Seite 539 - ... in his own way. His anger rises when Priam shows impatience. Hermes thus : and away to the lofty realms of Olympus, Darted and disappeared. From the car then Priam dismounted, And while Idaeus remained in the court behind, in attendance, Holding the horses and mules, at once to the tent of Achilles Passed. The belov'd of Zeus he found within, who was seated, Musing in mournful thought, and apart stood rang'd his attendants. Alcimus, scion of Mars, alone, and Automedon near him, Minist'ring stood....
Seite 20 - But when the sun had withdrawn his glorious light, and departed, Then for needful repose each god retired to his palace ; For, with ingenious craft, that cunning artist Hephaistos, Famed for his skill, had constructed for each a separate dwelling. Zeus ascended the couch, which when he consented to slumber, Laying aside for an instant his flaming bolts, he frequented. There he reclined, in celestial calm reposing ; and Hera, Quitting her throne of gold, lay tranquilly sleeping beside him.
Seite 316 - Breathless and bruised to the earth. Nor yet was my anger abated : Such were my grief and rage at the woes of godlike Heracles, Whom thy malignant hate, the subservient tempests arousing, Chased o'er the desolate sea by the aid of impetuous Boreas.
Seite 3 - Greeks, to your valour May the great Gods, who dwell in the lofty Olympian mansions Grant the destruction of Troy, and a safe return to your country ! Only restore me my darling child, and accept what I offer, (20) Ever revering the Son of Zeus, far-darting Apollo.
Seite 5 - Calchas, Thestor's son, far-famed as the wisest of augurs, One to whose mind inspired, the past, the present, the future (70) All were alike revealed : that Seer, whose sage divination (Phoebus Apollo's gift) had guided the ships of the Grecians Safely to Ilion's shore.
