THE Editor has long been persuaded that a brief and compendious Hand-Book of the Greek Drama would be welcomed by all persons who are engaged in Classical Tuition. The present work is one which aims rather at simple statement than at deep or original views: in fact to the latter it makes no pretensions. He has appended to the work a brief abstract or analysis of the Poetics of Aristotle, a treatise which, he fears, is but little studied in comparison of its deserts, and of which he purposes to bring out an edition, with English notes, if he meets with encouragement from those who are better able than himself to judge of the want of such a work.
He has in conclusion to express his regret at the long delay which has occurred in the publication of his little work; which he now sends forth to the public in the hope that it may be judged a useful addition to the educational literature of the day.
