131 ページ - the Templar has destroyed the plank on which they crossed ; few of the defenders escaped with him into the castle — the shrieks and cries which you hear tell the fate of the others. Alas ! I see it is still more difficult to look upon victory than upon battle.
75 ページ - One by one the archers, stepping forward, delivered their shafts yeomanlike and bravely. Of twenty-four arrows shot in succession, ten were fixed in the target, and the others ranged so near it that, considering the distance of the mark, it was accounted good archery.

He then took his aim with some deliberation, and the multitude awaited the event in breathless silence. The archer • vindicated their opinion of his skill : his arrow split the willow rod against which it was aimed. A jubilee of acclamations followed ; and even Prince John, in admiration of Locksley's skill, lost for an instant his dislike to his person.
76 ページ - Hubert, a forester in the service of Malvoisin, who was accordingly pronounced victorious. " Now, Locksley," said Prince John to the bold yeoman, with a bitter smile, " wilt thou try conclusions with Hubert, or wilt thou yield up bow, baldric, and quiver, to the Provost of the sports ?"

13 ページ - Pork," answered the swine-herd. "I am very glad every fool knows that too," said Wamba, "and pork, I think, is good NormanFrench; and so when the brute lives, and is in the charge of a Saxon slave, she goes by her Saxon name; but becomes a Norman, and is called pork, when she is carried to the Castle-hall to feast among the nobles; what dost thou think of this, friend Gurth, ha?" "It is but too true doctrine, friend Wamba, however it got into thy fool's pate.
130 ページ - She then uttered a loud shriek, and exclaimed, "He is down! — he is down!" "Who is down?" cried Ivanhoe; "for our dear Lady's sake, tell me which has fallen?" "The Black Knight," answered Rebecca, faintly; then instantly again shouted with joyful eagerness — "But no — but no!
78 ページ - I yield to the devil that is in his jerkin, and not to any human skill ; a man can but do his best, and I will not shoot where I am sure to miss. I might as well shoot at the edge of our parson's whittle, or at a wheat straw, or at a sunbeam, as at a twinkling white streak which I can hardly see.
76 ページ - You have not allowed for the wind, Hubert," said his antagonist, bending his bow, "or that had been a better shot." So saying, and without showing the least anxiety to pause upon his aim, Locksley...

The Disinherited Knight sprung from his steed, and also unsheathed his sword.
