PREFACE

I have already enumerated the articles in this volume which appeared originally in Cope's Tobacco Plant. As for the rest, the articles on Shelley (with the exception of the review of Symonds' "Life of Shelley," which appeared in Cope) and on William Blake first appeared in the National Reformer; the "Notes on the Genius of Robert Browning" in theTransactions of the Browning Society, Part I.; the article on "The Ring and the Book" in the Gentleman's Magazine; and the notice of "Pacchiarotto" in the Secularist. I have to thank the editors or proprietors of these various papers and periodicals for the permission kindly given to reproduce the various articles.
