Excerpt

No material changes will be found in this volume, though some slight additions and corrections have been made. The essay on The Dawn of Romanticism in Greek Poetry was introduced into the second edition. The same subject has recently received interesting and independent treatment from my friend Professor W. R. Hardie, in a chapter entitled The Vein of Romance in Greek and Roman Literature, which forms one of his Lectures on Classical Subjects (Macmillan and Co., 1903). It seems worth while to remind classical readers that, though we cannot efface the broad differences which are compendiously expressed in the terms "classical" and "romantic" poetry, the lines of distinction are not so hard and sharp as we are sometimes inclined to imagine.
