It is the characteristic pose of 18th century sensibility and reason, but the gentle, almost elegiac, romanticism of the painting is unusual for Boucher, who peddled decorative erotica to the French court. Now, at the sight of the presiding power, Wide spread the gates of a stupendous tower, On whose firm height, commanding Nature's bound, The faithful warder of the fort they found; Wakeful Intelligence, a trusty sprite, Whose eyes are piercing as the solar light, And ever on the watch to sound alarm, If aught of dusky hue, portending harm, Should, in defiance of her mandate, dare Approach the palace of th' imperial fair. This however will not apply in the case of unnamed items, periodicals, autograph letters, manuscripts, music, maps, atlases, prints or drawings, nor in respect of damage to bindings, stains, foxing, marginal wormholes or other defects not affecting the completeness of the text, nor in respect of lack of list of plates, inserted advertisements, cancels or subsequently published volumes, supplements, appendices or plates or error in the enumerating of the plates, nor in respect of defects mentioned in the catalogue or announced at the time of sale. Gerwig captures these moments so skillfully; in one of the most transporting scenes of the film, Jo takes to her desk after she has lost her childhood love and her sister, and heals herself with pen and paper. The fond Serena, who beheld its flight, Suspects no evil from a cloud so light; For harmless round her thin vapours wreathe, Not hiding from her view the scene beneath; But, ah! Her tender frame, nor confident nor coy, Had every fibre tun'd to gentle joy: No vain caprices swell'd her pouting lip; No gold produc'd a mercenary trip; Soft innocence inspir'd her willing kiss, Her love was nature, and her life was bliss.

Ne'er did the muse from her sweet treasure cull Incense so precious for a power so dull. No jarring wishes fill'd the world with woes, But youth was ecstacy, and age repose. As in her agitated hand the fair Waved the loose paper with disorder'd air, In capitals she saw Serena flame; She blush'd, she shudder'd, as she view'd the name: Her ready fears subside in new surprise, And eager thus she reads with lighten'd eyes: 'Go, faithful sonnet, to Serena say What charms peculiar in her features reign! Now laughing Sport, from the enlighten'd plain, Clear'd with quick foot the vestiges of pain; The gay scene grows more beautifully bright, Than when it first allured Serena's sight; Still her fond eyes o'er all the prospect range, Flashing sweet pleasure at the blissful change: Her curious thoughts with fond attachment burn, Yet more of this engaging land to learn.

It chanced her sire among his friends enroll'd A wealthy senator, infirm and old; Who, duped too early by a generous heart, Rashly assumed a misanthropic part: Though peevish fancies would his mind incrust Good-nature's image lurk'd beneath their rust; And gay Serena, with that sportive wit Which heals the folly that it designs to hit, Would oft the sickness of his soul beguile, And teach the sullen humourist to smile; Pleased by her virtuous frolics to assuage The mental anguish of distemper'd age. Here mild Philosophy, whose thoughtful frown Is sweetly shaded by her olive crown, In all her Attic elegance array'd, Strong to convince, and gentle to persuade To her, whose breath inspired his every rule, Leads the bless'd sire of the Socratic school. When time removed delusion's veil by stealth, And show'd the drear vacuity of wealth! Now, at the sight of the presiding power, Wide spread the gates of a stupendous tower, On whose firm height, commanding Nature's bound, The faithful warder of the fort they found; Wakeful Intelligence, a trusty sprite, Whose eyes are piercing as the solar light, And ever on the watch to sound alarm, If aught of dusky hue, portending harm, Should, in defiance of her mandate, dare Approach the palace of th' imperial fair. And when they have surfaced, the stories tend to be laden with piety and impossible standards. Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers 13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy.

Every person interested should exercise and rely on his own judgement as to such matters and neither the Auctioneer nor his servants or agents are responsible for the correctness of such opinions. She seem'd a rose-bud, when it first receives The genial sun in its expanding leaves: For now she enter'd those important years, When the full bosom swells with hopes and fears; When conscious Nature prompts the secret sigh, And sheds sweet languor o'er the melting eye; When nobler toys the female heart trepan, And Dolls rejected, yield their place to Man.

When sad experience proved the bitter fate Of beauty coupled to a senseless mate: These gentle wives still gloried to submit; These, though invited by alluring wit, Refused in paths of lawless joy to range, Nor murmur'd at the lot thy could not change: But, with a lively sweetness, unoppress'd By a dull husband's lamentable jest, Their constant rays of gay good humour spread A The triumphs of temper book glory round their idiot's head.

Now ripening years a nobler scene supply; For life now opens on thy sparkling eye: Thy rising bosom swells with just desire Rapture to feel, and rapture to inspire: Not the vain bliss, the transitory joys, That childish Woman feels, in radiant toys; The costly Diamond, or the lighter Pearl, The massive Nabob, or the tinsel Earl.

The hand of beauty, with an easy swell, Scoop'd the free concave like a bending shell; And on its richer exterior, Art display'd The triumphs of the power the car convey'd.

On truth's fair basis she her falsehood builds, With tinsel sentiment its surface gilds; To nightly labour from their dark abodes The demons of the groaning press she goads, And smiles to see their rapid art supply Ten thousand wings to every infant lie. For round its precincts many an ugly spite Speeds undiscern'd to poison lure delight: Amidst the foremost of this haggard band, Unwearied poster of the sea and land, Wrapp'd in dark mists malignant Scandal flies, While Envy's poison'd breath the buoyant gale supplies.

The auctioneer may at his sole discretion determine the advance of bidding or refuse a bid, divide any lot, combine any two or more lots or withdraw any lot without prior notice. When Fancy wrought the miracles of rhyme; When, darting from her star-encircled throne, Her poet's eye commanded worlds unknown; When, by her fiat made a mimic god, He saw existence waiting on his nod, And, at his pleasure, into being brought New shadowy hosts - the vassals of his thought, In Joy's gay garb, in Terror's dread array, Darker than night, and brighter than the day: Who at his bidding, through the wilds of air, Raised willing mortals far from earthly care, And led them wondering through his wide domain, Beyond the bounds of Nature's narrow reign; While their rapt spirits, in the various flight, Shook with successive thrills of new delight?

In the case of miscellaneous books, maps and other items, the Auctioneer reserves the right to extract and dispose of items that, in the opinion of the Auctioneer at his absolute discretion, have no saleable value and, therefore, might detract from the saleability of the rest of the lot and the Auctioneer shall incur no liability to the seller in respect of the items disposed of.

William Hayley: "His observation of the various effects of spleen on the female character, induced him to believe, that he might render an important service to social life, if his poetry could induce his young and fair readers to cultivate the gentle qualities of the heart, and maintain a constant flow of good humour.

It has been remarked that the trials of the Heroine are too insignificant. As a child, I wanted to inhabit the book, to the point where I tracked down the schedule Bronson Alcott wrote for his four daughters, which mandated that they wake up before dawn and take a cold bath.

With smiles they bore, from angry Spleen's exempt, Injurious mockery, and coarse contempt: 'Twas theirs to clasp each selfish care above, And form the cement of domestic peace. Dimly I see, on Destiny's dull glass, Three dangerous trials 'tis thy doom to pass; And oh!

George Saintsbury: "I do not think there is anything recorded there is nothing in Boswell as to Johnson's knowledge or opinion of these Triumphs, but he could certainly, on his own principles, have found no fault with their form. Firm be thy threads, and faithful to their trust; For hours approach, when all the stores they hide Of magic virtue must be strongly tied!

A horrific character of Jonathan Swift was later written out of the third canto. This poem, which was written with great rapidity, derived advantage from several incidents propitious to the fancy of its author; particularly a long and pleasant visit in the autumn from his favourite Romney, and the progress of rising affection between a couple of his friends, whom the tender artist painted at Eartham into a connubial attachment" Memoir of William Hayley Fain would my love thy secret perils show, Which Fate allows not even me to know: In Spleen's dark court a thousand agents dwell, Who bind her victims in the wayward spell; Perchance three prime supporters of her sway, The busiest of her Fiends, may cross thy way: Stern Contradiction, her ill-favour'd child, Of fierce demeanor, and of spirit wild, Bane of delight!
