PECTORAL EXPULSIVE-When Used.
The Pectoral in the Expulsive Form is the quality appropriate for the expression of the more violent forms of hate, malice, scorn, revenge, etc.
It will be observed that while the same passions are expressed by different qualities, and sometimes by the same quality in different forms, yet they are always in different degrees. It is the quality of voice that indicates the emotion or passion, the form that shows its intensity. Effusive Pectoral and Expulsive Pectoral may both express dread and horror, but not in the same degrees.
EXAMPLE: TERROR AND HORROR.
1. O, I have passed a miserable night!
Though 'twere to buy a world of happy days;
Methought, that I had broken from the Tower,
Who from my cabin tempted me to walk
Upon the hatches, thence we looked toward England, And cited up a thousand heavy times,
During the wars of York and Lancaster,
That had befallen us.
As we paced along
Upon the giddy footing of the hatches,
Methought, that Gloster stumbled; and, in falling,
O Lord! methought, what pain it was to drown!
3. Methought, I saw a thousand fearful wrecks;
All scattered in the bottom of the sea:
Some lay in dead men's skulls; and in those holes
That wooed the slimy bottom of the deep,
4. My dream was lengthened after life;
O, then began the tempest to my soul!
5. And so he vanished: Then came wand'ring by
Seize on him, furies, take him to your torments!
