Opulenta dei per templa parentis,
Fulvosque tripodas, donaque Delphica,
Ion Actæa genitus Creusa.

ANTISTROPHE.

Ergo, tu visere lucos

Musarum ibis amœnos;

Diamque Phœbi rursus ibis in domum,
Oxonia quam valle colit,

Delo posthabita,
Bifidoque Parnassi jugo:

Ibis honestus,

Postquam egregiam tu quoque sortem
Nactus abis, dextri prece sollicitatus amici.
Illic legeris inter alta nomina
Authorum, Graiæ simul et Latinæ
Antiqua gentis lumina, et verum decus.

EPODOS.

Judicia rebus sequiora forsitan
Adhibebit, integro sinu.

Vos tandem, haud vacui mei labores,
Quicquid hoc sterile fudit ingenium,
Jam sero placidam sperare jubeo
Perfunctam invidia requiem, sedesque beatas,
Quas bonus Hermes,

Et tutela dabit solers Roüsi;

[longe Quo neque lingua procax vulgi penetrabit, atque Turba legentum prava facesset:

At ultimi nepotes,

Tum, livore sepulto,

Si quid meremur sana posteritas sciet,

Ode tribus constat Strophis, totidemque Antistrophis, una demum Epodo clausis; quas tametsi omnes nec versuum numero, nec certis ubique colis exacte respondeant, ita tamen secuimus, commode legendi potius, quam ad antiquos concinendi modos rationem spectantes. Alioquin hoc genus rectius fortasse dici monostrophicum debuerat. Metra partim sunt κατὰ σχέσιν, partim ἀπολελευμένα. Phaleucia quæ sunt, Spondæum tertio loco bis admittunt, quod idem in secundo loco Catullus ad libitum fecit.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.

From the PALL MALL GAZETTE.

'A thoroughly readable and companionable edition of the poet. The print, like that of the well-known Aldine Poets, is beautifully clear; the notes are useful and concise, and the editor is careful to state in them whenever he amends' the text. The volumes, moreover, are portable, no slight matter in these days of frequent travel; and the edition, considering the style in which it is produced, is one of the cheapest ever published.'

From the ACADEMY.

'The late Mr. Singer's notes are of well-known excellence, learned but not pedantic, suggestive and informing without becoming trivial or intrusive. . . . He is no rash or lavish corrector of the text, though on occasion he is not found wanting. His chief service is his illustrations, and the charm of these is their freshness and variety. He draws water for himself straight from Elizabethan fountains-does not borrow it from his neighbour's cistern. Each play has 'Preliminary Remarks,' dealing with the date and the material, and like matters. The type of the text is of merciful size. Altogether this is a capital edition of its sort.'-Mr. J. W. Hales,

From the EXAMINER.

'The Aldine Edition of Shakespeare possesses the main requisites of a popular edition. The volumes are handy and the print is clear, while Mr. Singer's notes are conveniently brief: it must also be said that what there is of them is sound and good.'

From the SATURDAY REVIEW.

'The Aldine Edition of Shakespeare is of a small octavo size, convenient for carrying about, and is printed in good clear type. There is a biography of Shakespeare, introductions to each of the plays, and a series of foot-notes, which are brief, practical, and to the point, and sufficient in number without becoming, as is the case with most notes, an irritating distraction to the reader.'

[ocr errors]

'A cheap, compact, well-printed, and well-annotated edition of our greatest dramatic poet's works.'

From the NONCONFORMIST.

'An excellent though short life of the poet is given, and succinct introduction to each play. Footnotes, done with knowledge and care, are also given, explanatory and illustrative of the text. The plays themselves are clearly printed in tolerably large type, and for a really elegant, portable edition that can be easily held or carried, we could hardly think of anything better.'

"Mr. Lloyd's Essays on the Plays of Shakespeare are of the highest repute.'-The Academy.

'What Mr. Watkiss Lloyd does is always well done, and is always done freshly, thoughtfully, in a scholarly spirit . . . On the whole these Essays are really remarkable for their learning, breadth, and general soundness.'-Mr. J. W. Hales.
