The Deserted Village, the Task, and Sir Roger de Coverley: With Introduction, Lives of Authors, Character of Their Works, Etc;, with Copious Explanatory Notes, Grammatical, Historical, Biographical, Etc (Classic Reprint) by John Millar (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The Deserted Village, the Task, and Sir Roger De Coverley: With Introduction, Lives of Authors, Character of Their Works, Etc;, With Copious Explanatory Notes, Grammatical, Historical, Biographical, Etc Largely increased attention has been given of late years to the study of English Literature in our High Schools and Collegiate Institutes. In the hands of the teacher it has been found a most valuable discipline, and subject has been taken up with greater interest by students. In regard to the matter found in the following work pretensions are made to much originality. With such a large number of books already published that deal with the writings of Addison, Goldsmith and Cowper, to write much new matter would be a presumptuous and unnecessary task. It has been the object of the author to collect, condense, and methodically arrange whatever he has found suitable for his purpose as a teacher. The aim has been to put in book form such information as he has been accustomed to prepare for his own classes. The division of the chapters into appropriate paragraphs will, it is thought, prove a satisfactory feature in the arrangement. In the introduction definitions of the principal figures of speech have been given, more for the sake of reference than with the object of attaching much importance to them in ordinary High School work.
