The Lay of the Last Minstrel
WITH INTRODUCTION, NOTES AND GLOSSARY
J. SURTEES PHILLPOTTS, M. A.
ASSISTANT MASTER IN RUGBY SCHOOL,
ALL English teaching must for some time be tentative. < Under these circumstances it is hoped that, notwithstanding literary shortcomings, an attempt to illustrate one teacher's method of dealing with English may be of some service to others. The Editor would however add that, in his belief, the best training in English will generally consist not so much in requiring the knowledge of any notes, as in rigorously testing the pupil's understanding (1) of the author's meaning, and (2) of the bearing of separate passages on the whole.
The first edition of these Notes has been thoroughly remodelled, and an attempt made to remove the deficiencies shewn by the test of actual use in school. References to Abbott and Seeley's “ English Lessons for English Readers” have frequently been given in the belief that their book will, as it should, be in the hands of most pupils.
