  • Then Hector, stooping, seiz'd a pond'rous stone That lay before the gates; 'twas broad below, But sharp above; and scarce two lab'ring men, The strongest, from the ground could raise it up, And load upon a wain; as men are now; But he unaided lifted it with ease, So light it seem'd, by grace of Saturn's son.
    2.12 — Volume 2 Book 12 (94% in)
  • ...Ajax might endure; At once by Jove's high will and Trojan foes O'ermaster'd; loud beneath repeated blows Clatter'd around his brow the glitt'ring helm, As on the well-wrought crest the weapons fell; And his left arm grew faint, that long had borne The burthen of his shield; yet nought avail'd The press of spears to drive him from his post; Lab'ring he drew his breath, his ev'ry limb With sweat was reeking; breathing space was none; Blow follow'd blow; and ills were heap'd on ill.
    2.16 — Volume 2 Book 16 (12% in)
