Excerpt from English History Told by English Poets
IT is hoped that this volume will find a place as a reading-book in connection with the study of English history.
Poets are spirited historians; they enlist imagina tion and sympathy in the cause of the fading past. They turn the task of memory to pastime. They are not always accurate, but neither are more sedate chroniclers. The dulness of a record was never yet proof of its veracity.
