PREFACE

THIS volume, which completes the first decade of Essays and Studies, is dedicated by the Association to its distinguished Vice-President, and President for 1911, Dr. A. C. Bradley, as a token at once of admiration for his literary achievement and of gratitude for his devoted labours on the Association's behalf. Dr. Bradley joined the Publications Committee in 1908 and has rendered yeoman's service in all its activities. The Pamphlets on Shelley's View of Poetry, on The Uses of Poetry, and on The Reaction Against Tennyson are from his pen, and he edited the Short Bibliographies, English Literature in Schools : a List of Authors and Works, and A Reference Library of English Language and Literature. The Essays and Studies owe him a special debt. He collected the first volume in 1910 and the first volume after the war in 1920, and contributed a paper on Jane Austen to the volume of 1911. His example has been the encouragement of his comrades. If the Essays and Studies have made for themselves a modest place in English letters, it is largely due to Dr. Bradley's inspiration and counsel.
