Excerpt from Lyra Historica, Vol. 1: Poems of British History, A. D. 61-1910; A. D. 61-1381
To present this pageant and to inspire this rever ence for the great figures of the past - such are the objects of this Collection. Historical anthologies may err in two ways. In their... anxiety to illustrate every period, editors may fall back on poems of poor literary quality; or, if their propensities be literary, they may include good poems that illustrate little or nothing. I trust that our editors will be found to have avoided both errors indifferently well.
