Excerpt

This book is a collection of nine lectures delivered in Oxford at the invitation of the Board of English Studies in the winter of 1911-12. They were addressed primarily to members of the English School, but in effect to all students of modern literature in the University who cared to hear, from students of ancient literature, something of what the Classics mean in the history of letters. The story of the Ancients and Moderns is a story, happily, without conclusion, which has its sequel and its public in every generation. These lectures, here and there expanded, but printed, for the most part, as they were given, are now offered as an instalment of that story to the larger circle of readers.

G. S. G.

OXFORD, September, 1912.
