Excerpt from A Complete Dictionary of Poetical Quotations: Comprising the Most Excellent and Appropriate Passages in the Old British Poets; With Choice and Copoius Selections From the Best Modern British and American Poets
To the present Editor was committed the task Of revising the original work, and adding thereto selections from the modern British and American poets. This required the examination of a multitude of volumes, and much care and study, in order to exhibit, as far as possible, the characteristic excellence of each author. A difficult and delicate task it is to select from living poets, - especially when there are so many! The index shows an array of over four hundred authors; thus, at a glance, may be seen how wide has been the field Of research.
