  • The arrival of the worldrenowned headsman was greeted by a roar of acclamation from the huge concourse, the viceregal ladies waving their handkerchiefs in their excitement while the even more excitable foreign delegates cheered vociferously in a medley of cries, hoch, banzai, eljen, zivio, chinchin, polla kronia, hiphip, vive, Allah, amid which the ringing evviva of the delegate of the land of song (a high double F recalling those piercingly lovely notes with which the eunuch Catalani beglamoured our greatgreatgrandmothers) was easily distinguishable.†   (source)
  • It came to pass, however, that as Don Quixote was proceeding amid the acclamations that have been described, a Castilian, reading the inscription on his back, cried out in a loud voice, "The devil take thee for a Don Quixote of La Mancha!†   (source)
  • Back from pursuit thy Powers with loud acclaim
    Thee only extolled, Son of thy Father's might,
    To execute fierce vengeance on his foes,
    Not so on Man: Him through their malice fallen,
    Father of mercy and grace, thou didst not doom
    So strictly, but much more to pity incline:
    No sooner did thy dear and only Son
    Perceive thee purposed not to doom frail Man
    So strictly, but much more to pity inclined,
    He to appease thy wrath, and end the strife
    Of mercy and justice in thy face discerned,
    Regardless of the bliss wherein he sat
    Second to thee, offered himself to die
    For Man's offence.†   (source)

  • Unheard and unperceived, eight of us fired among them, and did dreadful execution; and in half a minute after, eight more of us let fly, killing and wounding abundance of them; and then dividing ourselves into three bodies, eight persons in each body we marched from among the trees, to the very teeth of the enemy, sending forth the greatest shouts and acclamations.†   (source)
  • Don Quixote and Sancho mounted once more, and with the same music and acclamations reached their conductor's house, which was large and stately, that of a rich gentleman, in short; and there for the present we will leave them, for such is Cide Hamete's pleasure.†   (source)
  • Down a while
    He sat, and round about him saw unseen:
    At last, as from a cloud, his fulgent head
    And shape star-bright appeared, or brighter; clad
    With what permissive glory since his fall
    Was left him, or false glitter: All amazed
    At that so sudden blaze the Stygian throng
    Bent their aspect, and whom they wished beheld,
    Their mighty Chief returned: loud was the acclaim:
    Forth rushed in haste the great consulting peers,
    Raised from their dark Divan, and with like joy
    Congratulant approached him; who with hand
    Silence, and with these words attention, won.†   (source)
  • with thick embattled squadrons bright,
    Chariots, and flaming arms, and fiery steeds,
    Reflecting blaze on blaze, first met his view:
    War he perceived, war in procinct; and found
    Already known what he for news had thought
    To have reported: Gladly then he mixed
    Among those friendly Powers, who him received
    With joy and acclamations loud, that one,
    That of so many myriads fallen, yet one
    Returned not lost.†   (source)
  • Up he rode
    Followed with acclamation, and the sound
    Symphonious of ten thousand harps, that tuned
    Angelick harmonies: The earth, the air
    Resounded, (thou rememberest, for thou heardst,)
    The heavens and all the constellations rung,
    The planets in their station listening stood,
    While the bright pomp ascended jubilant.†   (source)
