Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1830 Excerpt: ...--P. Crinitus deliberately gives those patch-work hexameters as the production of Septimius himself! and this blunder has been faithfully copied into the "Corpus Poetarum," erroneously attributed to Maittaire; on which see some remarks under "Ionic a Minore," Appendix, No. 52. Aminea scilicet a regione: nam Aminei fuerunt, ubi nunc Falernum est. Macrob. Sat. 3, 20. See Horace, Sat. 1, 5, 87--Mansuri oppidulo, quod versu dicere non est--Martial, book 9, epig. 12, respecting the name Earinus, of which the first syllable is short--Nomen nobile, molle, delicatum, Versu dicere non rudi volebam: Sed tu, syllaba eontumax, repugnas. Dicunt EIarinon tamen poetae, Sed Graeci, quibus est nihil negatum.... Nobis non licet esse tam disertis.... Ovid (Pontica, 3,12, 5), addressing his friend Tuticanus, in whose name the first and third syllables are long, and the second short--. Lex pedis officio, naturaque nominis, obstat: Quaque meos adeas, est via nulla, modos. Kutilius (Itinerar. 419) makes a similar complaint--Optarem verum complecti carmine nomen: Sed quosdam refugit regula dura pedes. Nay, long before these polished writers, and at a period when the Roman poetry was yet very uncouth and rugged, old Lucilius said, Servorum festu' dies est, Quem plane hexametro versu non dicere possis. The particle Re, indeed, naturally short, is made long in many compound words, as Religio, Reliquice, Reliquus, Reperit, Retulit, Repulit, Recidit, Reducere. Religione patrum multos servata per annos. (Virgil. Troas, reliquias Danaum atque immitis Achillei. (Virgil. Nunquam id relicuo reparari tempore posset, (Lucretius. Et res haeredem reperit illa suum. (Ovid. Retulit acceptos, regale numisma, Philippos. ( Horace. Repulit a Libycis immensum syrtibus aequor. (Luca...
