Excerpt from Golden Poems by British and American Authors
Hat this collection of English poetry has held its own for twenty-five years seems a sufficient reason for offer ing it to the public in a revised and enlarged edition. In the earlier preface it was stated that the search for material had been brought down as nearly as possible to the present. That present is now a quarter-century past; and while this interval has not been marked by the appearance of any great names in English poetry, much that is of interest has been given to the world both from poets already famous and from those who were unknown when the collection was originally made. The present edition, therefore, not only sustains the intention of the earlier one in bringing the material down to date, but includes matter that cannot fail to give increased richness and variety to the collection.
