175. 1. 10. Cimmerian. The Cimmerians lived at the end of the world where the sun never shone.—29. Hebe, cup-bearer of the Gods.—125. Hymen, god of marriage, commonly represented in English masques as here described (Browne).—136. Lydian airs, the ecclesiastical Mode which in the seventeenth century was equivalent to our scale of F major.—150. Eurydice. The story half told in 171, 1. 104.

176. From Sleep and Poetry. A good example of Keats's objective style. “These images are of life considered first as a mere atomic movement in a general flux, then as a dream on the brink of destruction, then as a budding hope, then as an intellectual distraction, then as an ecstatic glimpse of beauty, and lastly as an instinctive pleasure.'-Montmorenci, the river in Canada.

178. From As you like it, 11. 7. his sound, i.e. its sound, referring to voice. Its, the genitive of it, is not found before Elizabethan writers; ‘his' was the old genitive, and is much more frequent than “its’in Shakespeare.

179. From the Essay on Man, end of Ep. 11.–1. 2. will change, we should say would change.--1. 16. tickled with a straw: as this is not peculiar to babes, the expression must be metaphorical, and its apparent force immediately disappears. -Four lines below, in beads and prayer-books, the cynicism is overdone.

182. From Tintern Abbey.
183. Essay on Man, beginning of Ep. II.
188. Title of this poem is Resolution and Independence.

189. François Dominique Toussaint, surnamed L'Ouverture, was governor of St. Domingo, and chief of the African slaves en franchised by the decree of the French Convention (1794). He resisted Napoleon's edict re-establishing slavery in St. Domingo, was arrested and sent to Paris in June 1802, and there died after ten months' imprisonment in April 1803 (Hutchinson).

194. 1. 11. Siloa's brook, Pool of Siloam.-12. fast by, hard by, near by, not 'swift.'—15. Aonian Mount, Helicon, the abode of Apollo and the Muses.-92. highth, always thus, pronounced as spelt, in Milton.—109. “This question is parenthetical ; it means, the true glory is to be unconquered in spirit, though the field be lost '(Beeching).

199. From The Faery Queen, opening of 8th canto of Bk. 11.

200. 1. 3. insphered. See note to 171, 1. 89. 201. P.L. Bk. 11. 681.

202. P.L. Bk. 11. 557. 1. 55. Medusa, one of the three Gorgons, whose head, with snakes for hair, turned him who looked on it into stone.

209. The last four stanzas of nine in one of the lyrical monodies spoken by Earth in the last Act of Prometheus.

210. The second half of the second stanza of four. 212. Inspired by the call of the Great War.

216. Text of this poem is based on what would seem the best authority among many variants, some of which are probably the author's own corrections. One stanza is omitted on account of its perplexed grammar :

Who envieth none that chance doth raise,

Or vice; who never understood
How deepest wounds are given by praise ;

Nor rules of state, but rules of good.' 217. In the last line of stanza 4 I have substituted are for and in the common text : All of a piece, and all are clear and straight; and in last stanza Marksman for Markman.-In l. 13, the thing and the example means the principle and its spiritual application' (Palmer).
