Էջ 61 - TRAGEDY, as it was anciently composed, bath been ever held the gravest, moralest, and most profitable of all other poems : therefore said by Aristotle to be of power, by raising pity and fear, or terror, to purge the mind of those and such like passions, that is, to temper and reduce them to just measure with a kind of delight, stirred up by reading- or seeing those passions well imitated.

Էջ 22 - Dimorava allora il Manso nella dilettevolissima piaggia del mare in un bel casamento alquanto sopra gli altri elevato, e attorno attorno di bellissimi giardini circuito, i quali dalla vegnente primavera di nuove frondi e di variati fiori tutti rivestiti, con la verdura e col soave odore di quelli, e molto più con la purità dell'aria, per siffatto modo Torquato dalla sua invecchiata malinconia ricrearono, che tra per questo e per la libertà ch'egli si prendeva in quella casa, che non pure d...
Էջ 80 - Attending the precedent relation, it is allowed that this present work of Davanzati may be printed. - Vincent Rabatta, &c. It may be printed, July 15. - Friar Simon Mompei d' Amelia, chancellor of the holy office in Florence.
Էջ 62 - Sophocles, and Euripides, the three tragic poets unequalled yet by any, and the best rule to all who endeavour to write tragedy. The circumscription of time wherein the whole drama begins and ends, is according to ancient rule, and best example, within the space of twenty-four hours.
