Not illustrated. 1802 edition. Excerpt: ...is lefs to warn., to excite the patfions, than to convince the judgment. V. 124. Nor meanly fears to fall, nor creeps to rife; The con-ftruction of this line is faulty. With all the rage of pedant impotence? Say, fhall I fofter this domeftic peft, 135 This parricide, that wounds a mother's breaft? Thus in fome gallant fhip, that long has bore Britain's victorious crofs from more to more, By chance, beneath her clofe fequefter'd cells, Some low-born worm, a lurking mifchief dwells; Eats his blind way, and faps with fecret guile The deep foundations of the floating pile: In vain the foreft lent its ftatelieft pride, Rear'd her tall maft, and fram'd her knotty fide; The martial thunder's rage in vain fhe ftood, us With every conflict of the ftormy flood; More fure the reptile's little arts devour, Than wars, or waves, or Eurus' wintry power.
