Excerpt from Goldsmith's the Deserted Village: Gray's Elegy in a Country Churchyard

The text of this edition of He Deserted Vellage, T71e Traveller, and the Elegy in a Country C/mrdzyard is in each case that of the latest revised edition published during the lifetime of the author. Alterations have been limited to a few modernizations in spelling and capitalization, and to some minor changes, meces sary for consistency in a school edition, in the punctuation. The aim in the various parts of the Introduction has been to give in condensed form some idea of contempom conditions, literary and otherwise, as well as some account of the lives and works of the authors. A new feature that will add, it is believed, to the convenience, for school use, of this edition of I7ze Deserted mlage is the inclusion, in an appendix, of two passages usually read in connection with the poem; namely, the sketch of the poor parson from Chaucer's Prologue to He Canterbury Tales, and Dryden S Character of a Good Parson, from his Tales from C/zaueer.
