第 235 頁 - Shall I make spirits fetch me what I please, Resolve me of all ambiguities, Perform what desperate enterprise I will? I'll have them fly to India for gold, Ransack the ocean for orient pearl, And search all corners of the new-found world For pleasant fruits and princely delicates...
第 242 頁 - Ay, and body too: but what of that? Think'st thou that Faustus is so fond to imagine That, after this life, there is any pain? Tush, these are trifles and mere old wives
第 247 頁 - Now I remember those old women's words, Who in my wealth * would tell me winter's tales, And speak of spirits and ghosts that glide by night About the place where treasure hath been hid...
