EDITOR'S PREFACE.

This volume of the Household Library consists of two parts: 1st. Life of Milton, by Professor Masson; and 2d. An Estimate of Milton's Genius and Character, by Lord Macaulay. The parts are of nearly equal length, and, taken together, constitute a complete and very brilliant Life of Milton, “the poet, the statesman, the philosopher, the glory of English literature, the champion and martyr of English liberty.”

Professor Masson, of London University, has spent years upon a Life of Milton, the first installment of which he has recently given to the English public. This great work is everywhere welcomed by scholars, but is quite too voluminous for pop

Professor Masson has also written a brief Life of Milton, for the Ency

ular use.
