Stran 11 - ... fortunes and their own at the end of the fifteenth, and the beginning of the sixteenth centuries in all the courts of western Europe.
Stran 9 - Fair laughs the Morn, and soft the zephyr blows, While proudly riding o'er the azure realm In gallant trim the gilded Vessel goes : Youth on the prow, and Pleasure at the helm : Regardless of the sweeping Whirlwind's sway, That hush'd in grim repose expects his evening prey.
Stran 4 - It breathes everywhere the true Castilian spirit, such as the old chronicles represent it amidst the achievements and disasters of the Moorish wars ; and has very few traces of an Arabic influence in its language, and none at all in its imagery or fancies. The whole of it, therefore, deserves to be read, and to be read in the original ; for it is there only that we can obtain the fresh impressions it is fitted to give us of the rude but heroic period it represents : of the simplicity of the governments,...
Stran 9 - World as well as the Old, is unrivalled in richness, in variety, and in picturesque and poetical elements.

Stran 41 - Coepi egomet mecum sic cogitare : ' Hem ! nos homunculi indignamur, si quis nostrum interiit aut occisus est, quorum vita brevior esse débet, cum uno loco tot oppidum cadavera proiecta iacent ? Visne tu te, Servi, cohibere et meminisse hominem te esse natum ? ' Crede mihi, cogitatione ea non mediocriter sum confirmatus.
Stran 16 - Spanish novel of the same name, by Diego Hurtado de Mendoza (d. 1575), a novel of low life, the first of a class well known in Spanish literature under the name of the gusto picaresco, or the style of the rogues, and made famous all over the world in the brilliant imitation of it, Le Sage's
Stran 41 - Art thou too fallen, Iberia .•' Do we see The robber and the murderer weak as we ? Thou that hast wasted earth, and dared despise Alike the wrath and mercy of the skies, 70 Thy pomp is in the grave, thy glory laid Low in the pits thine avarice has made.
