Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Ballads and Songs of the Peasantry of England: Taken Down From Oral Recitation and Transcribed From Private Manuscripts, Rare Broadsides and Scarce Publications

In the arrangement of so multifarious an anthology, gathered from nearly all parts of the kingdom, the observance of chrono logical order, for obvious reasons, has not been attempted; but pieces which possess any kind of affinity to each other have been kept together as nearly as other considerations would permit.

The value of this volume consists in the genuineness of its con tents, and the healthiness of its tone. While fashionable life was masquerading in imaginary Arcadias, and deluging theatres and concert rooms with Shams, the English peasant remained 'true to the realities of his own experience, and produced and sang songs which faithfully re¿ected the actual life around him. Whatever these songs describe is true to that life. There are no fictitious raptures in them. Love here never dresses its emotions in arti ficial images, nor disguises itself in the mask of a Strephon or a Daphne. It is in this particular aspect that the poetry of the country possesses a permanent and moral interest.
