ENGLISH POETRY AND POETS.

TESTIMO NIAI,

From D. B. Hagar, A.M., Principal of the State Normal School, Salem, Mass.

“It gives me more than ordinary pleasure to commend to lovers of good literature Mrs. Sarah W. Brooks's Lectures on English Authors. They have been prepared with the utmost care, and they give ample evidence of patient and accurate research, of a refined taste, and of a just appreciation of the author's merits. The style of the lectures is graceful and attractive. For the private reader, and for classes in schools, these lectures cannot fail to be a source of great pleasure and profit.”

The Lectures have also been warmly commended by Dr W. J. Rolf E, and other eminent educators and critics.

POETRY AND POETS.

BY

SARAH WARNER BROOKS.

As the special distinction of man is speech, it would seem that there
can be no higher achievement of civilized men, no proof more conclusive
that they are civilized men, than the power of moulding words into such
fair and noble forms as shall people the human mind forever with images
that refine, console, and inspire. — Lowell.
