] NOTE 30, p. 30. "Her strength, her -wealth, her site of ancient days" Seville was the Hispalis of the Romans. NOTE 31, p. 30. "A thousand altars rise, for ever blazing bright. " [" Cadiz, sweet Cadiz ! it is the first spot in the crea- tion. The beauty of its streets and mansions is only excelled by the liveliness of its inhabitants. It is a com- plete Cythera, full of the finest women in Spain; the Cadiz belles being the Lancashire witches of their land. " Lord B. To his Mother. 1809. E. ] N...OTE 32, p. 31. "Provoking envious gibe front each Pedestrian churl. " ["In thus mixing up the light with the solemn, it was the intention of the poet to imitate Ariosto. But it is far easier to rise, with grace, from the level of a strain gen- erally familiar, into an occasional short burst of pathos or splendor, than to interrupt thus a prolonged tone of solem- nity by any descent into the ludicrous or burlesque. In the former case, the transition may have the effect of soften- ing or elevating; while, in the latter, it almost invariably shocks; for the same reason, perhaps, that a trait of pathos or high feeling, in comedy, has a peculiar charm; while the intrusion of comic scenes into tragedy, however sanctioned among us by habit and authority, rarely fails to offend.
