INTRODUCTION.

Again, on behalf of readers of this national library, I have to thank a poet of our day—­in this case the Oxford Professor of Poetry—­for joining his voice to the voices of the past through which our better life is quickened for the duties of to-day.  Not for his own verse only, but for his fine sense also of what is truest in the poets who have gone before, the name of Francis Turner Palgrave is familiar to us all.  Many a home has been made the richer for his gathering of voices of the past into a dainty “Golden Treasury of English Songs.”  Of this work of his own I may cite what was said of it in Macmillan’s Magazine for October, 1882, by a writer of high authority in English Literature, Professor A. W. Ward, of Owens College.  “A very eminent authority,” said Professor Ward, “has accorded to Mr. Palgrave’s historical insight, praise by the side of which all words of mine must be valueless,” Canon [now Bishop] Stubbs writes:—­“I do not think that there is one of the Visions which does not carry my thorough consent and sympathy all through.”
