This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...as his own" (Dowden). For the references to the poet's age.in the Sonnets, see p. 41 above. 3. Furrows. Cf. Sonn. 2 above, and Rich. III. i. 3. 229. 4. Expiate. Bring to an end. Cf. Rich. III. iii. 3. 23: "Make haste; the hour of death is expiate." Here, as there, Steevens conjectures "expirate," which White and Hudson adopt. Surely there is no need of coining a word to replace one which S. twice uses and which can be plausibly explained. Malone quotes Chapman's Byron's Conspiracie, in which an old courtier speaks of himself as " A poor and expiate humour of the court." XXIII 1. Vnperfect. Used by S. only here; but unperfectness occurs in Oth. ii. 3. 298. Imperfect we find in Sonn. 43. 11 and elsewhere, and imperfection six times in the plays. On the present passage, cf. Cor. v. 3. 40: --"Like a dull actor now, I have forgot my part, and I am out, Even to a full disgrace." 2. Besides. For the prepositional use, cf. T. N, iv. 2. 92: "Alas, sir, how fell you besides your five wits?" 3. Replete with too much rage. The rage overcoming self-control. 5. For fear of trust. Fearing to trust myself. Schmidt makes it = " doubting of being trusted;" but the context clearly confirms the explanation I have given. Dowden calls attention to the construction of the first eight lines, 5, 6 referring to 1, 2, and 7, 8, to 3. 4 6. Ceremony. Hudson says that the word "is here used as a trisyllable, as if spelt cer'mony;" but how he would scan the verse I cannot imagine. The word is clearly a quadrisyllable, as almost always in S. 9. Books. Sewell reads " looks;" but the old reading is supported by 13 below. The books, as Dowden remarks, are probably the manuscript books in which the poet writes his sonnets. 12. That tongue. Probably = any tongue, however eloquent, ...

Der neue Bestseller aus Schweden Herzerwärmend, einfühlsam und superkomisch: Ein wunderbar warmherziger Roman über eine Seniorenbande, die sich ihren Traum vom Glück verwirklicht Auch im Herbst des Lebens sollte noch Leben in der Bude sein, sagen sich Märtha, Snille, Kratze, Anna-Greta und Stina und schmieden einen Plan: Sie müssen ein Verbrechen begehen, damit sie raus aus diesem Heim und rein ins Gefängnis kommen, denn dort ist man bekanntlich viel besser dran. Gutes Essen, keine Sparmaßnahmen, geregelter Freigang. Doch Planung und Durchführung eines Verbrechens sind gar nicht so einfach – vor allem, wenn man es ehrlich meint. Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg erzählt eine kriminell lustige und herzerwärmende Geschichte über fünf Freunde, die ihrem Leben eine völlig neue Wendung geben und sich ihren Traum vom Glück erfüllen. Als die Freunde Märthas Zimmer verlassen hatten, stellte sie den Moltebeerenlikör zurück in den Kleiderschrank und summte fröhlich vor sich hin. Dieser Traum schien ihr neue Kraft zu geben. Nichts ist unmöglich, sagte sie sich. Aber um wirklich etwas zu verändern, musste sie Alternativen aufzeigen. Das war ihr Plan. Dann würden ihre Freunde glauben, sie hätten die Entscheidung ganz allein getroffen. »Ein wunderbar unterhaltender Roman mit einem hohen Wohlfühlfaktor!« Svenska Dagbladet »Das ist super komisch, wie die Polizei und die Jugomafia hinter fünf Alten mit ihren Rollatoren her sind!« Tara »Eine wunderbare Geschichte über eine diebische Rentnergang, die nach Aufruhr im Altenheim ein neues Leben beginnt.« Skanska Dagbladet »Fünf Senioren fliehen aus dem Altersheim mit dem Ziel, ein Verbrechen zu begehen.

Antonio, ein venezianischer Kaufmann, möchte seinen Freund Bassanio unterstützen, der auf Freiersfüßen wandelt: Bassanio hat sich in Portia, eine reiche junge Adelige, verliebt, und die Brautwerbung verspricht teuer, letztlich aber auch sehr lukrativ zu werden. Um dem Freund mit dem nötigen Geld unter die Arme greifen zu können, macht Antonio selber Schulden, und zwar bei dem jüdischen Geldverleiher Shylock. Shylock, der von den Christen Venedigs verachtet, von Antonio öffentlich beleidigt wird, und der seinerseits Antonio stellvertretend für alle Christen hasst, bietet im Gegensatz zu seiner üblichen Zinspraxis an, diesmal auf Zinsen zu verzichten. Als Sicherheit verlangt er, scheinbar zum Spaß, nur dies: Gelingt es dem Schuldner nicht, das geliehene Geld rechtzeitig zurückzuzahlen, so hat Shylock Anspruch auf „ein Pfund Fleisch“ aus Antonios Körper. Antonio willigt ein und unterschreibt einen entsprechenden Schuldschein, ist er sich doch sicher, dass seine Handelsschiffe, die zurzeit auf großer Fahrt sind, bald reich beladen nach Venedig zurückkehren werden.
