By George Martin Braune. Demy 8vo. 2s. “The character of a parish priest described by Chaucer four hundred years ago, is suited, in every respect but its archaic language, to describe the requi. sites of the same function in the present day. It is true that the character drawn by our ancient master of song was in stern contrast to the vices and ignorance of the clergy of his day; yet in the worst times of the Church there was many a faithful minister of religion who strove, to the best of his knowledge, to perform his duty. Some such person Chaucer had in his mind when he composed his eulogy on the Persone of a Toun.' The perusal of it led me to consider the beauty of the Christian character with regard to my own profession. I resolved to delineate the same in verse, and I adopted the metre and a modification of the language of Spenser, as a mean between the times of Chaucer and our own.”—Preface.
