Trilby, Vol. 1 of 3 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Trilby, Vol. 1 of 3Theseus, a little Venus Of Milo, a little discobolus; a little flayed man threatening high heaven (an act that seemed almost pardonable under the circumstances!) a lion and a boar by Barye an anatomical figure Of a horse, with only one leg left and no ears; a horse's head from the pediment Of the Parthenon, earless also; and the bust Of Clytie, with her beautiful low brow, her sweet wan gaze, and the ineffable forward shrug Of her deahe bust Of Clytie, with her beautiful low brow, her sweet wan gaze, and the ineffable forward shrug Of her dear shoulders that makes her bosom as a nest, a rest, a pillow, a refuge - the likeness Of a thing to be loved and desired for ever, and sought for and wrought for and fought for by generation after generation Of the sons Of men.Near the stove hung a gridiron, a frying pan, a toasting-fork, and a pair of bellows. In an adjoining glazed corner cupboard were plates and glasses, black handled knives.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
