The texts of the essays in this collection are from authoritative sources, and the occasional omitted passages have been scrupulously indicated. Spelling and punctuation, however, have been normalized to modern usage, and quotations corrected without special remark.
The editor wishes to acknowledge his indebtedness to the apparatus in Professor Albert S. Cook's editions of Shelley's, Newman's, and Leigh Hunt's essays on poetry.
