الصفحة 32 - The sunken glen, whose sunless shrubs must weep, The tender azure of the unruffled deep, The orange tints that gild the greenest bough, The torrents that from cliff to valley leap. The vine on high, the willow branch below, Mix'd in one mighty scene, with varied beauty glow, of.
الصفحة 109 - Ce ne sont point les prairies et les feuilles d'un vert cru et froid qui font les admirables paysages, ce sont les effets de la lumière : voilà pourquoi les roches et les bruyères de la baie de Naples seront toujours plus belles que les vallées les plus fertiles de la France et de l'Angleterre.
الصفحة 53 - Oh never talk again to me Of northern climes and British ladies; It has not been your lot to see, Like me, the lovely girl of Cadiz. Although her eye be not of blue, Nor fair her locks, like English lasses, How far its own expressive hue The languid azure eye surpasses ! S.
الصفحة 180 - Estos, Fabio, ¡ay dolor! , que ves ahora campos de soledad, mustio collado, fueron un tiempo Itálica famosa. Aquí de Cipión la vencedora colonia fue: por tierra derribado yace el temido honor de la espantosa muralla, y lastimosa reliquia es solamente. De su invencible gente sólo quedan memorias funerales, donde erraron ya sombras de alto ejemplo.
الصفحة 178 - Beggars of all classes are numerous enough in every part of Spain, and since the expulsion of their patrons, the monks, have transferred their attendance from the convents to the churches ; but never do I remember witnessing such an assemblage as within and around the walls of Seville Cathedral. The eye is never weary of beholding, nor the mind of contemplating, this magnificent temple. Every day of my short stay in Seville, I spent many hours within its walls, besides frequently availing myself...
الصفحة 179 - ... and when the tapers before some far-off shrine seemed burning at an indefinite distance ? — Or, in the hour of silence, solitude, and darkness, has he paced the deserted aisles, and experienced the tremendous sense of remaining alone with the Deity ? Has he witnessed and felt all this ? — his mind must have been irresistibly and profoundly impressed, and he must have owned " That in such moments there was life and food For future years 1" THE HEARTH OF SCRIVELSBY COURT.
الصفحة 131 - ... of age alone. Of the vast quantity and value of the wine in the stores at Xerez, some idea may be formed from the fact, that in Domecq's bodegas alone, are no less than eleven thousand butts, averaging in value on the spot one hundred and thirty or one hundred and forty dollars, or about thirty pounds sterling, per butt.
الصفحة 131 - England, in dank, under-ground vaults, with low ceilings, stalactited with cobwebs, but in vast and lofty houses, called bodegas, from which the light of day is in part excluded. On entering one of these I was struck with the coolness and obscurity of the place — a delicious contrast to the heat and glare of the burning streets. The whole floor of the building was occupied by parallel rows of huge butts, in double tiers. Of these butts there are sometimes two thousand or more in one bodega. The...
الصفحة 121 - ... Admiral, notwithstanding his Lordship used all possible diligence in the landing of his men, arrived not till we were, in a manner, full masters of the town. It was long disputed whether the town should be held or not. I offered with 4,000 men, to defend it till Her Majesty's pleasure might be known. The Lord of ESSEX seemed to affect to remain there in person : which the rest of the Council would not assent to, but [determined] rather to abandon the town and set it on fire. Which we did, about...
الصفحة 307 - A tall, handsome fellow, in the gay majo costume, attended the young couple ns a servant, and it was amusing to observe the great familiarity existing between him and his patrons. He took his seat with them, joined in their conversation, and gave his opinion unasked with the freedom of one who owned no superior. An extraordinary familiarity between master and servant is general in Spain ; but I never saw it carried to greater lengths than in this instance. Our party at the inn was increased in a...
