EDITED, WITH NOTES,

BY

HOMER B. SPRAGUE, Ph.D.,

HEAD MASTER OF THE GIRLS' HIGH SCHOOL, BOSTON, MASS., AND FORMERLY PROFESSOR OF RHETORIC AND ENGLISH LITERATURE IN

THE CORNELL UNIVERSITY.

PREFACE.

This edition of Lycidas is designed especially for school use. The Editor has endeavored to avoid the extremes of too copious notes on the one hand, which relieve the student from all necessity of original thought and investigation; and too meagre notes on the other, which leave the student unaware of the rich treasures that are hid from him who does not go below the surface. The text is Masson's; but the spelling has been more consistently modernized, wherever neither the sound nor the meaning of the word would be affected by such change. The Editor will be thankful for corrections and suggestions.

GIRLS' High School,

Boston, Sept. 1, 1878.
