Excerpt from Narrative and Lyric Poems: For Students

To stumble unexpectedly upon a poem, or a volume of poems, with the sudden thrill of discovery, to wander among the works of the poet as one seeking the face of a friend in a crowd, - this is the approach to poetry that all agree brings the happiest results. That poems may be profitably studied, however, is not universally acknowledged. This is wholly natural; for treatment too vague is obviously likely to be unstimulating, and treatment too pedantic is sure to kill spontaneous interest. This volume is compiled with a full realization of these besetting dangers, yet in the conviction that poetry can be studied with profit. Furthermore, it attempts to give some con crete suggestions toward the realization of this ideal.
