Designed to meet the wants of Students in English Literature:
under the superintendence of the Rev. J. S. BREWER, M.A., of
Queen's College, Oxford, and Professor of English Literature
at King's College, London.

THERE are two dangers to which the student of English literature is exposed at the outset of his task ;-his reading is apt to be too narrow or too diffuse.

Out of the vast number of authors set before him in books professing to deal with this subject he knows not which to select; he thinks he must read a little of all; he soon abandons so hopeless an attempt; he ends by contenting himself with second-hand information; and professing to study English literature, he fails to master a single English author.

On the other hand, by confining his attention to one or two writers, or to one special period of English literature, the student narrows his view of it; he fails to grasp the subject as a whole; and in so doing misses one of the chief objects of his study.
