Pàgina 133 - I have seen,) which notwithstanding as it is full of stately speeches, and well-sounding phrases, climbing to the height of Seneca his style, and as full of notable morality, which it doth most delightfully teach, and so obtain the very end of poesy...
Pàgina 496 - I do embrace it : for even that vulgar and tavernmusick which makes one man merry, another mad, strikes in me a deep fit of devotion, and a profound contemplation of the first composer. There is something in it of divinity more than the ear discovers : it is an hieroglyphical and shadowed lesson of the whole world, and creatures of God, — such a melody to the ear, as the whole world, well understood, would afford the understanding. In brief, it is a sensible fit of that harmony which intellectually...
Pàgina 31 - Dovunque drizza Michel Angel l'ale, Fuggon le nubi, e torna il ciel sereno. Gli gira intorno un aureo cerchio, quale Veggiam di notte lampeggiar baleno. Seco pensa tra via, dove si cale II celeste corrier per fallir meno, A trovar quel nimico di parole, A cui la prima commission far vuole. Vien scorrendo ov
Pàgina 36 - ... nferno, ove il pensar di vui ch'abbia così lasciata, assai più ria sarà d'ogn'altra pena che vi sia. — A questo la mestissima Issabella, declinando la faccia lacrimosa e congiungendo la sua bocca a quella di Zerbin, languidetta come rosa, rosa non colta in sua stagion, sì ch'ella impallidisca in su la siepe ombrosa, disse: — Non vi pensate già, mia vita, far senza me quest'ultima partita. Di ciò, cor mio, nessun timor vi tocchi; ch'io vo' seguirvi o in cielo o ne lo 'nferno.
Pàgina 115 - But sweat of Hercules can ne'er beget So blest an issue. Therefore, we proclaim, If any spirit breathes within this round, Uncapable of weighty passion, (As from his birth being hugged in the arms, And nuzzled...
Pàgina 460 - I had,) and been counted happy to be bom in such a place of philosophic freedom, as they supposed England was, while themselves did nothing but bemoan the servile condition into which learning amongst them was brought; that this was it which had damped the glory of Italian wits ; that nothing had been there...
Pàgina 173 - Baccano fosse tutta di lauri, non basterebbe per coronar i crocifissori del Petrarca, i quali gli fanno dir cose con i loro comenti, che non gliene fariano confessare diece tratti di corda.
Pàgina 358 - Milan. The question still remains to be asked how Aretino, Berni's avowed enemy, obtained possession of the MS. Berni had many literary friends. Yet none of them came forward to avert the catastrophe. None of them undertook the publication of his remains. His last work was produced, not at Florence, where he lived and died, but at Venice ; and Albicante, Aretino's tool, was editor. In the present state of our knowledge it is impossible to answer this question authoritatively. Considerable light,...
Pàgina 351 - Pietro Aretino Tu ne dirai e farai tante e tante, lingua fracida, marcia, senza sale, che al fin si troverà pur un pugnale meglior di quel d'Achille e più calzante. 4 II papa è papa, e tu sei un furfante, nodrito del pan d'altri e del dir male; hai un pie in bordello e l'altro in ospitale, storpiataccio, ignorante e arrogante.
