Note: First sentence: "As Aurora stept forth from the gates of the East, With her garland of roses, and dew-spangled vest, A clamour unusual assaulted her ear, Instead of the Lark, and her friend Chanticleer, At least though their voices she sometimes could trace, they seem'd overpower'd by the whole feather'd race: And such was the chirping, and fluttering then, It rouz'd an old Lion asleep in his den; Enrag'd at this racket so much out of season, He, roaring, sent out to ask what was the reason, And the Jackal soon learnt from some stragglers about, 'Twas the company come from Sir Argus's rout."

Search Tips

Phrase Searching

Use quotes to search an exact phrase: e.g. "occult fiction"


Use * or ? to search for alternate forms of a word. Use * to stand for several characters, and ? for a single character: e.g. optim* will find optimal, optimize or optimum; wom?n will find woman and women.

Boolean Searching

Use AND and OR between words to combine them with Boolean logic: e.g. (heart OR cardiac) AND surgery will find items about heart surgery or cardiac surgery. Boolean terms must be in uppercase.
