and bewilderment. As to the choice of field :- while I would not reassert in behalf of any verdict, least of all in behalf of my own, that “a foreign nation is a kind of contemporaneous posterity,” it yet may be true that from this distance a reviewer can advantageously observe the general aspect of British poetry, whatever minor details may escape his eye. In concluding this work, I wish to acknowledge my obligations to friends who have assisted me in its revision : — to Professor Roswell D. Hitchcock, D. D., for valuable hints concerning recent hymnology; to Mr. Richard H. Stoddard, for access to his choice collection of English verse; to Messrs. William J. Linton and George P. Philes, for important data relating to the recent minor poets; and especially to Mr. Robert U. Johnson, of New York, and Mr. Henry H. Clark, of Cambridge, for careful and unstinted aid, at a time when, from prolonged illness, it was impossible for me to verify the statistical portion of
my volume, or even to revise the proof-sheets as they came from the press.
