Pagina 223 - And will he not come again? And will he not come again? No, no, he is dead; Go to thy death-bed, He never will come again. His beard was as white as snow All flaxen was his poll, He is gone, he is gone, And we cast away moan: God ha
Pagina 223 - ... the] moment, breaks forth into that extravagant rhapsody which he utters to Laertes. Counterfeited madness, in a person of the character I have ascribed to Hamlet, could not be so uniformly kept up, as not to allow the reigning impressions of his mind to show themselves in the midst of his affected extravagance.
Pagina 96 - Men fear Death, as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other.

With a man possessed of feelings like Sir Edward's, the affliction of Louisa gave a certain respect to his attentions.
Pagina 220 - Saxo-Grammaticus, from which the tragedy of Hamlet is taken, the young prince, who is to revenge the death of his father, murdered by his uncle Fengo, counterfeits madness that he may be allowed to remain about the court in safety and without suspicion. He never forgets his purposed vengeance, and acts with much more cunning towards its accomplishment than the Hamlet of Shakspeare.
Pagina 301 - It was at the close of a piece of music, which they had been playing in the absence of her father. She took up her lute, and touched a little wild melancholy air, which she had composed to the memory of her mother.
