This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1906 edition. Excerpt: ...such as you, ever the ready vicfims of stupid illusion?--9ln olJcn gtpfdit pntfeit, 'to lay hold of by every tag, ' i.e., to lay hold of with all one's might. 5753-Oil' llttb all', 'all together, ' ' every one of us.' Cf. 2ltt Slle in 1. 8483+. 5761-2. Plutus as magician draws an invisible line to keep back the crowd--as a ' pledge ' for the maintenance of the order established. lltttcrpfnitb, dat. rather than appositive to SBattb. 5791. lutcbcrnmrtig; here = ' disgusted, ' 'shocked.' 5792. itOdfi'l'ttg, 'ready for mischief.'

The meaning is: In a moment the entire space within the magic circle will be filled with the cohorts of Pan; thus the immodest antics will be brought to an end by a simple ' need ' of space to perform in, which 'need ' is more potent than any ' law' imposed by the magic wand for which the Herald has asked. 5801-6. The lines must be taken as a general marching-chorus of the Fauns, Satyrs, Gnomes, etc., who are to speak for themselves in separate groups further on. This being so, we should expect them to say: SB it feiern unfern grofcen span. SB!it wiffen bod u.f.ro. Instead of this the ' Wild Army' describes itself in the third person, as if the lines were spoken by the Herald for the information of the crowd. A like incongruity occurs in 11. 5816 ff., 5819 ff., 5829 ff., and 5864 ff. 5801. junta! = sufammen aitf etnmal. 5805. maS fetttcr WCtfe; viz., that Pan is the Emperor. 5810. fd)ulbi(l, ' as in duty bound.'...show more
