Excerpt

This volume consists of four papers of the late Professor Greenlaw, the first two not before published. Chapter I was read before the History of Ideas Club at The Johns Hopkins University, December 15, 1927, and later at the annual meeting of the Modern Language Association at Louisville in the same year. Chapter II represents material used in the English Conference and Seminary at Hopkins and read as the presidential address before The Johns Hopkins Philological Association in October, 1929. Chapter III is a reprint of Professor Greenlaw article, Spenser and the Earl of Leicester, from Publications of the Modern Language Association 25 (1910), 535-561; and Chapter IV is a reprint of his Spenser and British Imperialism from Modern Philology 9 (1912), 347-370.

Although Professor Greenlaw had not changed any of his opinions regarding the fundamental theses of the two articles here reprinted, he intended, nevertheless, to revise them before including them in this work. Had he been able to carry out this revision, he would, I am sure, have modified some details and strengthened others, and he would have taken into account the criticisms that have been made of the articles in question. Obviously, I could do none of this. I have, therefore, printed them just as he left them.
