Excerpt from The Household Book of Poetry
The arrangement of the book will be seen to be somewhat novel; but it is hoped that it may be found convenient to the reader, and not alto gether devoid of aesthetic congruity. The Editor also fiatters himself that in classifying so many immortal productions of genius according to their own ideas and motives, rather than according to their chronology, the nativity and sex of their authors, or any other merely external order, be has exhib ited the incomparable richness of our language in this department of litera ture, quite as successfully as if he had followed a method more usual in such collections.
