Why this?  Did anyone suggest this was not the meaning?  Eagles stoop:
did, and do.

> According to my dictionary:

> stoop: v  6. to swoop down, as a bird in pursuing its prey.
> stoop: n  4. A descent, as of a bird or prey

What about

Second Gentleman:                You speak him far.
First Gentleman:
                   I do extend him, sir, within himself,
                   Crush him together rather than unfold
                   His measure duly.
                   (1. 1. 24 - 27)

Is this 'wonderfully sharp, polished .  . . writing  '? It strikes me as
over-elaborate, strained and clumsy.
