tions as this. At the close of each chapter is appended a reference list of easily obtainable works in history, literature, and criticism. Since the impulse of the book is to encourage the reader to investigate the literature itself, good editions and translations of the classics are cited. Topics for special study are suggested as well.

For the shortcomings of this book the authors must, of course, accept full responsibility. It is pleasant, however, to record in this place our appreciation of the helpful advice and criticism of a number of friends, especially the following: Dean Roy C. Flickinger and Professor William F. Bryan, of Northwestern University; Reverend P. F. O'Brien, Professor of Latin in the St. Paul Seminary; Miss Carolina Marcial Dorado, of Columbia University; Dr. Edwin H. Lewis and Mlle. Lea De Lagneau, of Lewis Institute, Chicago; Mlle. Bertha de C. Favard, of Hyde Park High School, Chicago; Dr. Philip S. Allen, of The University of Chicago; and Professor Frederick W. Roe, of the University of Wisconsin. In particular we are indebted to Brother Leo, Professor of Literature in St. Mary's College, Oakland, California, and to Mr. Walter Taylor Field for time most generously taken in reading the entire manuscript.
