Excerpt from Scott's Lay of the Last Minstrel: Cantos IV.-Vi., With Introduction and Notes
The language of Scott's poetry is in general so clear, and the ideas so simple, that little is needed in the way of explanation. The notes therefore consist chie¿y of such remarks on gr... ammar and etymology as are sug gested by the words and constructions in the text. At the same time I have tried to bear in mind that the series, of which this edition forms a part, is intended mainly for Indian students, most of them imperfectly acquainted with the English language, and almost eu titely ignorant of Scotch and English habits and customs. I have therefore been obliged to enter into explanations of some matters that would be perfectly clear to an English school-boy. I have, as a rule, not given the meanings of ordinary words, unless I had something else to say about them, because I think that school-boys, English or In diau, should be encouraged in the use of the dictionary for themselves.
