INDEX OF FIRST LINES
Adieu, adieu! my native shore.....
'Bring forth the horse!' The horse was brought..
Clime of the unforgotten brave !......
Come, blue-eyed maid of heaven!—but thou, alas.
I had a dream, which was not all a dream..
I tread on air, and sink not; yet I fear..
Is thy face like thy mother's, my fair child !.....
Know ye the land where the cypress and myrtle..
Mont Blanc is the monarch of mountains.
My hair is gray, but not with years..
Not in those climes where I have late been straying.
O talk not to me of a name great in story
O, thou! in Hellas deemed of heavenly birth..
So, we'll go no more a roving...
The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold..
The castled crag of Drachenfels..
The isles of Greece! the isles of Greece..
The lamp must be replenish'd, but even then.
"I do not know where else, within the limits, to find so delightful a selection of noble poems."-Prof. Thomas R. Price of Columbia.

Some 250 complete poems, besides selections from such long poems as "The Faërie Queene," "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage," etc.

New York Tribune: "We believe it will be received cordially by all lovers of poetry, whether elementary students or not. Basing his selections on the individual excellence and historic importance of the poems, the editor has not allowed his fidelity to the latter test to overrule his taste, and there is very little matter in the book which is historically significant alone. First and last, this is an anthology of the best poetry."
Prof. Henry A. Beers of Yale, author of "English Romanticism in the Eighteenth Century," etc.: "The collection seems to me in general made with excellent judgment, and the notes are sensible, helpful, and not too weitläufig."
Prof. Albert S. Cook of Yale: "A thoroughly good selection, and the notes are judicious, so far as I have examined."
Prof. William Hand Browne of Johns Hopkins: "The scope is amply wide, and the selections as judicious as was possible under the limitations. The notes, judging from a hasty glance, seem full and clear."
Prof. Charles W. Kent of the University of Virginia: "Contains nearly all the poems I would wish in such a volume and very few that I would readily dispense with."
Prof. James M. Dixon of Washington University: "It is just such a handy volume as can be made, by a sympathetic teacher, a companion to the scholar for life."
