Excerpt from Selections From Byron: The Prisoner of Chillon; Mazeppa; And Other Poems
In the choice of selections for this volume T/ze Prz'sone of Cid/[on and Mazeppa, since they are among the colleg entrance requirements, were naturally the first conside Other poems, in whole or in part, have been included, for study or for reading, that the book may perhaps be useful in college classes also. Lack of space, the purpose the volume, and, in some cases, objectionable matter In t poems themselves have excluded from this collection t dramas, the longer narrative poems, and the satires; C/zilde Hamid and Don farm very well lend themselves selection, and we find among Byron's poems many beauti and appropriate lyrics.
It is hoped that the notes may be found sufficiently rate to pave the way to a full appreciation of the poems out hampering the instructor or interfering with the student' self-activity. I was in such dread of over-editing, having severe terrible examples before my eyes, that my first intention wa to include nothing in the notes that could be found by tht student in any ordinary work of reference. So rigorous policy, however, seemed to be mistaken in view of the fac that in some cases such works of reference may not be readil accessible; hence the historical, geographical, and othe annotations. Some of Byron's allusions are of doubtful sig nificance, and in such instances I have expressed merely opinion.
