And in Ecclesiasticus, "Who will pity the enchanter that has been bitten by the serpent?"
Merlin was a King in early Britain; he was also an Enchanter.
The marvel of their captivation lay in the spell of the enchanter.
Theirs the Enchanter's toil, not in vain,—making ropes out of sea-sand.
Every age, every person, and every art obeys the wand of the enchanter.
