Figures of Sentences are those by which either our affections are elegantly expressed, or matters mightily magnified. The difference between the figures of words, and the figures of sentences is great, found bout in thier formes and effectes, for the firgures of wordes are as it were effeminate, and musicall, the figures of sentences are manly, and martiall, those of words are as it were the colour and beautie, these of sentences are as the life and affection, which are divided into figures of affection, and figures of Amplication.
