They land

They pass through the Woods


They visit the great Morai
They discourse of the Gods of Mardi,
and Braid-Beard tells of one Foni

They visit the Lake of Yammo
They meet the Pilgrims at the Temple of Oro

They discourse of Alma

Mohi tells of one Ravoo,
and they land to visit Hevaneva, a flourishing Artisan

A Nursery-tale of Babbalanja’s

Landing to visit Hivohitee the Pontiff;
they encounter an extraordinary old Hermit;
with whom Yoomy has a confidential Interview,
but learns little

Babbalanja endeavors to explain the Mystery
Taji receives Tidings and Omens


Media and Babbalanja discourse
They regale themselves with their Pipes
They visit an extraordinary old Antiquary
They go down into the Catacombs

Babbalanja quotes from an antique Pagan;
and earnestly presses it upon the Company,
that what he recites is not his but another’s

They visit a wealthy old Pauper

Yoomy sings some odd Verses,
and Babbalanja quotes from the old Authors
right and left

What manner of Men the Tapparians were
Their adventures upon landing at Pimminee

A, I, and O

A Reception-day at Pimminee
Babbalanja falleth upon Pimminee Tooth and Nail

Babbalanja regales the Company with some Sandwiches

They still remain upon the Rock
Behind and Before

Babbalanja discourses in the Dark

My Lord Media summons Mohi to the Stand
Wherein Babbalanja and Yoomy embrace

Of the Isle of Diranda
They visit the Lords Piko and Hello
They attend the Games

Taji still hunted and beckoned

They embark from Diranda
Wherein Babbalanja discourses of himself
Of the Sorcerers in the Isle of Minda
Chiefly of King Bello, Dominora and Vivenza

They land at Dominora
Through Dominora, they wander after Yillah
They behold King Bello’s State Canoe
Wherein Babbalanja bows thrice

Babbalanja philosophizes,
and my Lord Media passes round the Calabashes

They sail round an Island without landing;
and talk round a Subject without getting at it

They draw nigh to Porpheero;
where they behold a terrific Eruption
Wherein King Media celebrates the Glories of Autumn;
the Minstrel, the Promise of Spring
In which Azzageddi seems to use Babbalanja for a Mouthpiece

The charming Yoomy sings

They draw nigh unto Land

They visit the great central Temple of Vivenza
Wherein Babbalanja comments upon the Speech of Alanno

A Scene in the Land of Warwicks, or King-makers

They hearken unto a Voice from the Gods
They visit the extreme South of Vivenza
They converse of the Molluscs, Kings, Toad-stools, and other Matters

Wherein, that gallant Gentleman and Demi-god, King Media,
Scepter in Hand throws himself into the Breach

They round the stormy Cape of Capes
They encounter Gold-hunters
They seek through the Isles of Palms;
and pass the Isles of Myrrh

Concentric, inward, with Mardi’s Reef,
they leave their Wake around the World

Sailing on

A Sight of Nightingales from Yoomy’s Mouth

They visit one Doxodox

King Media dreams

After a long Interval, by Night they are becalmed

They land at Hooloomooloo

A Book from the “Ponderings of old Bardianna”

Babbalanja starts to his Feet

At last, the last Mention is made of old Bardianna;
and His last Will and Testament is recited at Length

A Death-cloud sweeps by them as they sail

They visit the palmy King Abrazza

Same pleasant, shady Talk in the Groves,
between my Lords Abrazza and Media,
Babbalanja, Mohi, and Yoomy…

They sup
They embark

Babbalanja at the Full of the Moon
L’Ultima sera

They sail from Night to Day
They land

Babbalanja relates to them a Vision

They depart from Serena
They meet the Phantoms
They draw nigh to Flozella
They land
They enter the Bower of Hautia
Taji with Hautia
Mardi behind: an Ocean before1
