The Chaucer Epoch Literature free pdf Excerpt from The Chaucer Epoch Literature The series of which this little volume is the first may be said to have three purposes: First, to teach the history of our literature in a rational and orderly manner- second, to illuminate the history of England by exhibiting the thoughts of its men of letters in their own words- and, third, to display, as if in a gallery, some specimens of the inheritance into which every English-reading boy and girl has entered. It has been too long the practice to teach English literature in handbooks which give only the briefest examples, if any, of the works they profess to describe- and our many excellent school anthologies, from their want of a definite historical arrangement, and the absence of prose, fail almost entirely to give a connected view of the development of our language. Now, the history of our literature falling, as it undoubtedly does, into a series of well-marked periods of excellence, appears to lend itself peculiarly to the historical treatment suggested by the word 'epoch.' As to the principles of selection, I have tried to choose work of intrinsic interest only, work suitable for use in schools, and work which permitted of abstraction from its context without great detriment. 'Scrappiness' is a charge to which all anthologies are open, but I have tried to lessen its force by the preponderance of lyric songs, the admission of a tale of Chaucer almost intact, and the complete poem of The Nut-brown Maid.
