Strona 81 - Behind him cast ; the broad circumference Hung on his shoulders like the moon, whose orb Through optic glass the Tuscan artist views, At evening, from the top of Fesole, Or in Valdarno, to descry new lands, Rivers, or mountains, in her spotty globe.
Strona 80 - And hence th' egregious wizard shall foredoom The fate of Louis, and the fall of Rome. Then cease, bright Nymph! to mourn thy ravish'd hair, Which adds new glory to the shining sphere! Not all the tresses that fair head can boast, Shall draw such envy as the lock you lost.
Strona 280 - A Pastoral of an hundred lines may be endured ; but who will hear of sheep and goats, and myrtle bowers, and purling rivulets, through five acts?

Strona 177 - ... better practice. His wit was so tempered, that no man had ever reason to wish it had been less ; he prevented other men's severity upon it, by his own : he never willingly recited any of his writings. None but his intimate friends ever discovered he was a great poet, by his discourse. His learning was large and profound, well composed of all ancient and modern knowledge. But it sat exceeding close and handsomely upon him : it was not embossed on his mind, but enamelled.

Strona 88 - Milan, to reform and govern the ducal library of Modena. The name of Muratori will be for ever connected with the literature of his country : above sixty years of his peaceful life were consumed in the exercises of study and devotion ; his numerous writings on the subjects of history, antiquities, religion, morals, and...
