Excerpt from Imagination and Fancy or Selections From the English Poets, Illustrative of Those First Requisites of Their Art: With Marking of the Best Passages, Critical Notices of the Writers, and an Essay in Answer to the Question "What Is Poetry?"
With the great poet of the Faerie Queene the Editor has taken special pains to make readers in general better acquainted; and in furtherance of this purpose he has exhibited many of his best passages in remarkable relation to the art of the Painter.
For obvious reasons no living writer is included; and some, lately deceased, do not come within the plan. The omission will not be thought invidious in an Editor, who has said more of his contempo raries than most men; and who would gladly give specimens of the latter poets in future volumes.
