Definition
to restrain freedom
  • Down in the deep recesses of the sea A spacious cave there is, which lies midway 'Twixt Tenedos and Imbros' rocky isle: Th' Earth-shaking Neptune there his coursers stay'd, Loos'd from the chariot, and before them plac'd Ambrosial provender; and round their feet Shackles of gold, which none might break nor loose, That there they might await their Lord's return; Then to the Grecian army took his way.
