EDITOR'S PREFACE

The text of Sesame and Lilies here presented is that of the Brantwood edition, the recognized American edition. I have included Ruskin's own preface to the edition of 1882, as undoubtedly helpful in understanding the man and his book. The notes are fuller than could be wished. In the case of the Biblical allusions, for example, I should have preferred to leave the identification to the student as part of the “intense reading” that Ruskin eloquently urges. But I have quailed before the cry of “insufficient time,” which comes from high-school teachers of English everywhere. Only a few parallel passages are adduced from Ruskin's other works. His message was, as I have tried to point out, so single, so constantly recurred to in all his writings, that his works may almost be said to be made up of a series of parallel passages. Only when what he has said elsewhere has served in some fashion to explain what he says here, have I cited it. How the student is to use the notes may safely be left to the individual teacher. But one thing it seems wise to urge, and urge strongly—that not a word of the lectures themselves be read until the first two sections of the Introduction have been talked over carefully in the class

This is to reverse the ordinary procedure.
