made to give the modern synonyms of the obsolete, archaic, and dialectic words in the selections from Chaucer, Spenser, Shakespeare, and Burns.

In conclusion, the editor desires to extend his thanks to the many friends who by their advice and assistance have helped to form this anthology. When the project was first considered, a tentative table of contents was submitted to a number of persons known to be interested in the reading and study of poetry and critical coöperation was requested. Many of the suggestions given in answer to this request were of great value and were gladly adopted. Lieutenant Robert C. Richardson, Jr., at present assistant professor in the Department of English and History at West Point, prepared the glossary and read the manuscript of the biographies. Miss Irene W. Starr did much of the work in making the indices. Above all, the editor's acknowledgment is due to Professor Henry A. Beers, of Yale University, who has given much valuable criticism of the selections and of the introductory outline.

L. H. H. West Point, New York,

August, 1915.
