The subject of the present work is very extensive, and it was soon found necessary to leave out the Dramatic Poets for separate treatment.

To them may possibly be added such other of our eminent poets as could not be included in the present work. It will be recollected that it is professedly on the Homes and Haunts of the Poets, and is not strictly biographical. For this reason there are some poets of considerable eminence who will find comparatively small mention ; and others none, not because they are not entitled to much notice, but because there is nothing of deep interest or novelty connected with their homes and abodes.

The Elus, CLAPTON, Dec. 18, 1846.
