الصفحة 20 - ... suddenly, conjecturing that it concealed the body of her murdered aunt, she seized it, in a fit of desperation, and drew it aside. Beyond, appeared a corpse, stretched on a kind of low couch, which was crimsoned with human blood, as was the floor beneath. The features, deformed by death, were ghastly and horrible, and more than one livid wound appeared in the face.
الصفحة 179 - The sun had now been set some time; heavy clouds, whose lower skirts were tinged with sulphureous crimson, lingered in the west, and threw a reddish tint upon the pine forests, which sent forth a solemn sound as the breeze rolled over them. The hollow moan struck upon Emily's heart, and served to render more gloomy and terrific every object around her,— the mountains, shaded in twilight— the gleaming torrent, hoarsely roaring— the black forests, and the deep glen, broken into rocky recesses,...
الصفحة 417 - Bursts as a wave that from the clouds impends, And swell'd with tempests on the ship descends ; White are the decks with foam ; the winds aloud Howl o'er the masts, and sing through every shroud ; Pale, trembling, tired, the sailors freeze with fears; And instant death on every wave appears \— So pale the Greeks the eyes of Hector meet, The chief so thunders, and so shakes the fleet.
الصفحة 5 - The time, however, was now come, when she could hesitate no longer: and then the interest she felt for her aunt overcame other considerations, and, bidding Annette follow her to the outer door of the vaulted gallery, and there await her return, she descended from her chamber. The castle was perfectly still, and the great hall, where so lately she had witnessed a scene...
الصفحة 8 - Down these steps, lady," said Barnardine, as he descended a flight which appeared to lead into the vaults; but Emily paused on the top, and demanded in a tremulous tone whither he was conducting her. "To the portal,
الصفحة 18 - The feeble rays of the lamp, however, did not allow her to see at once its full extent ; she perceived no furniture, except, indeed, an iron chair, fastened in the centre of the chamber, immediately over which, depending on a chain from the ceiling, hung an iron ring. Having gazed upon these, for some time, with wonder and horror, she next observed iron bars below, made for the purpose of confining the feet, and on the arms of the chair were rings of the same metal. As she continued to survey them,...
الصفحة 357 - ... devotion if they never see the sun rise or set ? Never till this evening did I know what true devotion is ; for never before did I see the sun sink below the vast earth ! To-morrow, for the first time in my life, I will see it rise. O who would live in Paris, to look upon black walls and dirty streets, when, in the country, they might gaze on the blue heavens and all the green earth...
الصفحة 14 - Up this staircase the signora lies, said Barnardine. Lies! repeated Emily faintly, as she began to ascend. She lies in the upper chamber, said Barnardine. As they passed up, the wind, which poured through the narrow cavities in the wall, made the torch flare, and it threw a stronger gleam upon the grim and sallow countenance of Barnardine, and discovered more fully the desolation of the place — the rough stone walls, the spiral stairs black with age, and a suit of ancient armour, with an iron visor,...
الصفحة 9 - Come, lady," said the man, who had nearly reached the bottom of the flight, "make a little haste; I cannot wait here all night." "Whither do these steps lead?" said Emily, yet pausing. "To the portal," repeated Barnardine in an angry tone; "I will wait no longer.
