Prefatory Note

THIS volume is a reprint, extended and revised, of the ’Selected Poems’
of Goldsmith issued by the Clarendon Press in 1887. It is ’extended,’
because it now contains the whole of Goldsmith’s poetry: it is ’revised’
because, besides the supplementary text, a good deal has been added in the way of annotation and illustration. In other words, the book has been substantially enlarged. Of the new editorial material, the bulk has been collected at odd times during the last twenty years; but fresh
Goldsmith facts are growing rare. I hope I have acknowledged obligation wherever it has been incurred; I trust also, for the sake of those who come after me, that something of my own will be found to have been contributed to the literature of the subject.

AUSTIN DOBSON.
