POEMS BY JOHN MILTON:

With Life and Notes, Critical and Philological.

BY JOHN M. ROSS,

UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW,

SENIOR MASTER OF ENGLISH LITERATURE IN THE HIGH SCHOOL OF EDINBURGH.

[blocks in formation]

The present edition of part of Milton's Poems is an attempt to turn an English classic
to a stricter academic use than hitherto. Every competent critic acknowledges the im-
mense value of a national literature; and the desire has very naturally arisen in the public
mind that it should be made available in some way or other for the purposes of a liberal
education. The mere verbal study of Latin and Greek is apt to produce a meagre culture
and a pedantic spirit. Unless earnestly carried on for a series of years, it yields no very
rich results either in knowledge or mental discipline. Perhaps, therefore, the best com-
plement to such partial training in scholarship is the study of the masterpieces of English
Literature, in which boys can more easily and vividly feel the charm of thought and sen-
timent than in languages whose grammatical difficulties they have still to overcome.
Latin and Greek will no doubt always remain the basis of genuine literary culture; but
the superstructure must more and more be English. The Editor of the present work has
endeavoured to keep this in view, and hopes that teachers may find the book helpful, not
only in fostering a love of literature among their pupils, but also in imparting a more
exact and vigorous discipline in language than is customary in the English department of

education.
