171 ページ - If the flights of Dryden therefore are higher, Pope continues longer on the wing. If of Dryden's fire the blaze is brighter, of Pope's the heat is more regular and constant. Dryden often surpasses expectation, and Pope never falls below it. Dryden is read with frequent astonishment, and Pope with perpetual delight.
208 ページ - Beneath a rude and nameless stone he lies, To which thy tomb shall guide inquiring eyes. Peace to thy gentle shade, and endless rest ! Blest in thy genius, in thy love too blest! One grateful woman to thy fame supplies What a whole thankless land to his denies.
194 ページ - Pope had, in proportions very nicely adjusted to each other, all the qualities that constitute genius.

205 ページ - To this sad shrine, whoe'er thou art, draw near, Here lies the friend most lov'd, the son most dear : Who ne'er knew joy, but friendship might divide, Or gave his father grief but when he dy'd.
85 ページ - Achilles strove ; Such was the sovereign doom, and such the will of Jove. Declare, O Muse, in what ill-fated hour Sprung the...
88 ページ - But Pallas now Tydides' soul inspires, Fills with her force, and warms with all her fires ; Above the Greeks his deathless fame to raise, And crown her hero with distinguish'd praise.
