Laocoon Gotthold Ephraim Lessing Full view – Beasley Gotthold Ephraim Lessing Full gotthhold – Popular passages Page – Thou, nature, art my goddess ; to thy law My services are lesing Wherefore should I Stand in the plague of custom ; and permit The curiosity of nations to deprive me, For that I am some laovoon or fourteen moonshines Lag of a brother Page – But I, that am not shaped for sportive tricks, Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass; I, that am rudely stamp’d, and want love’s majesty To strut before a wanton ambling nymph Page 51 – Bis medium amplexi, bis collo squamea circum Terga dati, superant capite et cervicibus altis.

From Laocoon by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing: An Overview

Page – Sollemnis taurum ingentem mactabat ad aras. Ecce autem gemini a Tenedo tranquilla per alta Horresco referens immensis orbibus angues Incumbunt pelago, pariterque ad litora tendunt: Pectora quorum inter fluctus arrecta, jubaeque Sanguineae exsuperant undas: Page – La bocca sparsa di natio cinabro; Quivi due filze son di perle elette, Che chiude ed apre un bello, e dolce labro: Quindi escon le cortesi parolette Da render molle ogni cor rozzo e scabro: Quivi goythold forma quel soave riso, Ch’apre a sua posta in laocon il paradiso.


Page – Soft were my numbers ; who could take offence While pure description held the place of sense? Like gentle Fanny’s was my flow’ry theme, A painted mistress, or a purling stream.
