PREFACE

Most of the essays in this volume have appeared in various periodicals - the Century Magazine, the North American Review, the Forum, the New Englander, the Yale Review, and others. Some were written as introductions to limited editions. The first essay was originally read at a joint meeting of the American Academy and the National Institute of Arts and Letters, at New York, in 1912; the essay on Schiller was read at Yale University, on the one hundredth anniversary of the poet's death, in 1905.
