الصفحة 9 - She to Artacia's silver streams came down (Artacia's streams alone supply the town): The damsel they approach, and ask'd what race The people were? who monarch of the place? With joy the maid the' unwary strangers heard, And show'd them where the royal dome appear'd.
الصفحة 8 - Within a long recess a bay there lies, Edged round with cliffs high pointing to the skies; The jutting shores that swell on either side Contract its mouth, and break the rushing tide. Our eager sailors seize the fair retreat, And bound within the port their crowded fleet: For here retired the sinking billows sleep, And smiling calmness silver'd o'er the deep.
الصفحة 9 - To wreak his hunger on the destin'd prey; One for his food the raging glutton slew, But two rush'd out, and to the navy flew. Balk'd of his prey, the yelling monster flies, And fills the city with his hideous cries; A ghastly band of giants hear the roar, And pouring down the mountains, crowd the shore. Fragments they rend from off the craggy brow, And dash the ruins on the ships below: The crackling- vessels burst; hoarse groans arise, And mingled horrors echo to the skies: The men, like fish, they...
الصفحة 10 - Dire Scylla there a scene of horror forms, And here Charybdis fills the deep with storms. When the tide rushes from her rumbling caves, The rough rock roars, tumultuous boil the waves...
الصفحة 10 - Nigh the cursed shore and listen to the lay. No more that wretch shall view the joys of life His blooming offspring, or his beauteous wife! In verdant meads they sport; and wide around Lie human bones that whiten all the ground: The ground polluted floats with human gore, And human carnage taints the dreadful shore Fly swift the dangerous coast: let every ear Be stopp'd against the song!
الصفحة 6 - He answer'd with his deed. His bloody hand Snatch'd two, unhappy! of my martial band; And dash'd like dogs against the stony floor: The pavement swims with brains and mingled gore. Torn limb from limb, he spreads his horrid feast, And fierce devours it like a mountain beast: He sucks the marrow, and the blood he drains, Nor entrails, flesh, nor solid bone remains.
الصفحة 18 - If, in the neighbourhood of the commercial and literary town of Glasgow, a race of cannibals has really existed, we may contemplate, in the period of the Scottish history, the opposite extremes of savage and civilized life.
الصفحة 24 - ... who live in the hollows of trees, which they ascend by means of long notched pieces of timber. The agility of the youth of this race among the branches of trees is wonderful ; they will climb and spring from one branch to the other almost with the ease of monkeys, and like those animals when attacked take to the trees as refuges, where they can defend themselves with great chance of success. Their habits are essentially the same as those of other tribes already named. Beccari bears testimony...
الصفحة 8 - Whose fate proclaims him hateful to the gods." ' Thus fierce he said : we sighing went our way, And with desponding hearts put off to sea. The sailors spent with toils their folly mourn, But mourn in vain; no prospect of return. Six days and nights a doubtful course we steer, The next proud Lamos' stately towers appear, And Laestrygonia's gates arise distinct in air.
الصفحة 19 - ... women, cursing her that she was so unhappy to commit so damnable deeds. To whom she turned about with an ireful countenance, saying : — ' Wherefore chide ye with me, as if I had committed ane unworthy act ? Give me credence and trow me, if ye had experience of eating men and women's flesh, ye wold think it so delicious that ye wold never forbear it again.
