Note: First sentence: "When the poets who make pretty tales for December, Had told what all youngsters who read well remember, How the Peacock assembled the Birds in her hall, And the Insects all danced at the Butterfly's ball; From the region of aether, ah! strange to unfold, by young Zephyr, turn'd gossip, the story was told Wherever he went,--till by Echo 'twas caught, (For scandal and news travel rapid as thought,) And conveyed to the Fishes, who gave themselves airs, And resolv'd they would do as they did above stairs; Thus excited to envy, they vow'd, in their turn, To be gay like their neighbours, 'to live and to learn.'"

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.
