PREFACE.

THE TEXT of the Poems in this Edition will, it is hoped, be found very accurate, having been carefully prepared by the Editor for the larger Edition, called "The Cambridge Edition," which appears at the same time. The INTRODUCTIONS and NOTES are an adaptation to the Golden Treasury size of the more extensive and minute editorial matter of the larger Edition. The prefixed MEMOIR has been written for the present Edition, with a view to make it, as one of the books of the Golden Treasury series, independently complete.
