Longinus and English Criticism

Excerpt

This essay on Longinus is intended solely for the use of students of English who are concerned with the history and theory of literary criticism. As such, its concern with the scholarly editions of the Greek text is slight; and while I have attempted to give alternative translations where the meaning seemed in doubt, I must take full responsibility for the personal and individual nature of the less orthodox speculations.

By courtesy of the Clarendon Press the English translation which I have used is that of A. O. Prickard, as being that most generally available, and I have assumed a knowledge, on the part of the student, of that text. Dr Rhys Roberts' edition has been used for checking: I am also indebted to it in other ways.

I owe much to the advice and encouragement of Dr E. M. W. Tillyard, who has been good enough to read the manuscript: to Dr W. H. S. Jones, for his help with certain of the classical terms, and to my wife for assistance in the proof-reading.
