Definition
a large mountain system in south-central Europe; scenic beauty and winter sports make them a popular tourist attraction
  • ...more Than savages could suffer: thou didst drink The stale of horses, and the gilded puddle Which beasts would cough at: thy palate then did deign The roughest berry on the rudest hedge; Yea, like the stag when snow the pasture sheets, The barks of trees thou browsed'st; on the Alps It is reported thou didst eat strange flesh, Which some did die to look on: and all this,— It wounds thine honour that I speak it now,— Was borne so like a soldier that thy cheek So much as lank'd not.
    1.4 — Act 1 Scene 4 — Rome. An Apartment in CAESAR'S House (79% in)
