Hypozeuxis is a figure or forme of speech which joineth to everie thing a due verbe, which is the contrarie to Zeugma.
An example: such is mans depressed nature and perverse inclination, that taking away the use of government, every kind of evill shal quickly oppresse every part of goodnes, ambition shal strive for honor, pride shall disdaine obedience, malice proceede to murder, theft deprive true possessors, idlenes neglect labor, impietie scorne religion, and raging tumults violate peace, and turne a happie state into a miserable confusion, whereupon it insueth that open rebellion is raised, good men murdered, virgins defloured, holy places polluted, houses burned, cities defeaced, lawes despised, the whole earth confounded, and the omnipotent power of God either little regarded or utterly forgotten.
The use of this figure.
This figure is not only very pleasant in respect of the brevitie and
varietie of the matter, but also very pithie in respect of the causes and effects accompanying one another, and is fit for
3.Meete for grave causes.
grave causes, not withstanding it may be used in other also.
The especiall warning which this caution may give, is to take
2.Not to mo things than one.
heed that the verbe be not unproper, nor that one verbe serve
to moe things then one, nor one verbe be more then once repeated.
