ACUTE ACCENT: A diacritical mark indicating primary stress. But suddenly she roused up. ``Of her?'' she repeated in a louder voice. ``Why should I talk of another woman? Such catachresis often results from hyperbole and synaesthesia. For example, if you are exploring the issue of "justice" in one of the plays, you can find out what the Greek words are that have "justice" as part of their definition, and then search for those words directly in the Greek text of the play. The other day at Rambouillet, whenever I had a hare at the end of my gun I would think of her cruel words and my eyes would run full of tears.

Others we could mention; but these form a phalanx, whose reputation was neither confined to their narrow, poor, and rugged native country, nor to England and the British dominions, but known and respected wherever learning, philosophy, and science were honoured. In my present abode my sudden absences might have been in the long run subject to comment. The door closed behind us; we had been abandoned by Mr. We had the good fortune to sit beside our late lamented friend, and were listening to the ingenious distinctions which he was pointing out with great earnestness and precision, between Falstaff as ``Sir John to all Europe,''---as one who jested familiarly with John of Gaunt on his breaking Justice Shallow's head for crowding among the marshalmen ---as the companion of the Prince of Wales---and the same Falstaff as the gallant of Doll Tearsheet, in all the coarse indulgence of the Boar's Head, where he himself was, as it is usually termed, the Cock of the Company---``the old boar, in short, feeding in the old frank.'' While we were listening to this with much edification, a roar was heard behind us like distant thunder---the units of the strong chain which suspended the chandelier were giving way, and became slackened so much, that it gradually sunk and came into collision with the dumb-waiter aforesaid--- which was crushed to shivers beneath its weight, while all the garnishing of the beaufet, like Alnaschar's stock in trade, was annihilated with a crashing scream, which might equal that of the dying elephant.

Ferguson, says in a letter to me, that Mr. Home's favourite model of a character, on which, indeed, his own was formed, was that of Young Norval, in his tragedy of Douglas, one endowed with chivalrous valour and romantic generosity, eager for glory beyond every other object, and, in the contemplation of future fame, entirely regardless of the present objects of interest or ambition.'' ---Vol. i., pp. 6, 7. All he discovered was a strange, fat woman, a sort of virago, who had, apparently, been put in as a caretaker by the man of affairs.

All I have in that line is one copy of the third edition that was so thumbed and soiled from using it to read out of in public that it would tempt nobody to steal it. "I suppose that I should have preserved at least one copy of the first edition for its historic interest, but, like Henry Ford, I am inclined to think that history is 'mostly bunk,' at least any sentimental tenderness over one's personal history. 'So sad, so fresh, the days that are no more.' Beautiful but bunk, bunk, bunk.

It took him 18 months to write The Cat in the Hat. I sense their presences in earth and air... Think of each section as a separate poem, and try to organize sections based on things like rhythm, meaning, poems that speak to each other, and so forth. This sense of intentional focus seems intentionally organized or framed by events in the poem so that it can be more fully understood by quiet contemplation. The present question merely is, whether, the money being spent, and the water-works completed, a great example of human power over the elements has not been given, and a corresponding effect produced?

As you can see, I got the rhythm for the two sound poems above from the sounds themselves. A delightful collection of poems, most of which were written for carol services, and many of which are regularly included in Christmas-tide services throughout the UK. This word was coined in 1812, when a voting district was formed with an irregular shape suggesting a resemblance to a salamander during the administration of Elbridge Gerry, then governor of Massachusetts.
