Excerpt from Poésies Choisies
Encouraged by the favourable reception accorded to the Oxford Modern French Series,' the Delegates of the Clarendon Press determined, some time since, to issue a Higher Series of French works intended for Upper Forms of Public Schools and for Uni... versity and Private Students, and have entrusted me with the task of selecting and editing the various volumes that will be issued in due course.
The titles of the works selected will at once make it clear that this series is a new departure, and that an attempt is made to provide annotated editions of books which have hitherto been obtainable only in the original French texts. That Madame de Sta'e'l, Madame de Girardin, Daniel Stern, Victor Hugo, Lamartine, Flaubert, Gautier are among the authors whose works have been selected will leave no doubt as to the literary excellence of the texts included in this series.
Works of such quality, intended only for advanced scholars, could not be annotated in the way hitherto usual, since those for whom they have been prepared are familiar with many things and many events of which younger students have no knowledge. Geographical and mythological notes have therefore been generally omitted, as also historical events either too well known to require elucidation or easily found in the ordinary books of reference.
