PREFACE.

Of the following Essays, two-those on Lady Mary Wortley Montagu and on Edward FitzGerald — first appeared in " The Quarterly Review”; one — that on Gray-in “Murray's Magazine "; the study of Cowper in “Macmillan's Magazine "'; and that of Gibbon in the “Fortnightly Review."

A few slight alterations and corrections have been made in reprinting them. With these exceptions, they are republished in their original form ; and, for permission to do this, I am indebted, in the several cases, to the courtesy of Mr. Murray, Messrs. Macmillan & Co., and Messrs. Chapman & Hall, which I take this opportunity of acknowledging

The Essays on Swift, Johnson, and Lamb appear now for the first time.
