Stran 3 - A dungeon horrible on all sides round, As one great furnace flamed ; yet from those flames No light ; but rather darkness visible, Served only to discover sights of woe, Regions of sorrow, doleful shades, where peace And rest can never dwell ; hope never comes, That comes to all ; but torture without end Still urges, and a fiery deluge, fed With ever-burning sulphur unconsumed.
Stran 3 - With hideous ruin and combustion down To bottomless perdition, there to dwell In adamantine* chains and penal fire, Who durst defy the Omnipotent to arms. Nine times the space that measures day and night To mortal men...
Stran 19 - With dangerous expedition to invade Heaven, whose high walls fear no assault or siege, Or ambush from the Deep. What if we find Some easier enterprise ? There is a place (If ancient and prophetic fame in Heaven Err not) — another World, the happy seat Of some new race, called Man, about this time To be created like to us, though less In power and excellence, but favoured more 350 Of Him who rules above ; so was His will Pronounced among the gods, and by an oath That shook Heaven's whole circumference...

At ille respondens, " Nescio," inquit, " cantare ; nam et ideo de convivio egressus hue secessi, quia cantare non poteram." Rursum ille qui cum eo loquebatur, " Attamen," ait, " mihi cantare habes," " Quid," inquit, " debeo cantare ? " At ille, " Canta," inquit,
Stran 15 - ... bonae actionis excitare curabat. Erat enim vir multum religiosus, et regularibus disciplinis humiliter subditus ; adversum vero illos qui aliter faceré volebant, zelo magni fervoris accensus : unde et pulchro vitam suam fine conclusit.
Stran 15 - ... si posset, hunc in modulationem carminis transferre. At ille, suscepto negotio, abiit, et mane rediens optimo carmiue, quod iubebatur, compositum reddidit.
Stran 8 - ... their highest achievements, and then there will be found much to praise and to approve. We take the following lines from the Creation of Eve as a proof of our assertion : — And thereof made the mother of mankind.
