Then must you speak Of one, that lov'd not wisely, but too well; Of one, not easily jealous, but, being wrought, Perplex'd in the extreme; of one, whose hand, Like the base Judean, threw a pearl away Richer than all his tribe; of one, whose subdu'd
eyes, Albeit unused to the melting mood, Drop tears as fast as the Arabian trees Their med'cinable gum. Othello, A. 5, S. 2,

PEN U RY. Take the basest and most poorest shape, That ever penury in contempt of man, Brought near to beast: my face I'll grime with filth; Blanket my loins; elf all my hair in knots; And with presented nakedness out-face The winds, and persecutions of the sky.

“ From the sky down flickering, &c.* STEEVENS To “flicker" is likewise to fleer, to look proudly. Phoebus cannot well be faid to flutter, but he certainly may be said to fileer. Kent is laughing at Cornwal, and compares his " grand afpect” to the proud looks of Apollo.

Richard II. A. 5, S. 1. I am the most unhappy woman living.Shipwreck'd upon a kingdom, where no pity, No friends, no hope, no kindred weep for me, Almost, no grave allow'd me:- like the lily, That once was mistress of the field, and flourishid, I'll hang my head, and perish.
