A Selection from the Poems of
IN response to a widely-spread lack of interest in my writings, I have consented to publish a small and unrepresentative selection from the same. With characteristic cunning I have not included any poems published later than the Third Volume of my Collected Works.
The selection has been made by a committee of seven competent persons, sitting separately.
Only those poems have been included which obtained a majority vote.
This volume, thus almost ostentatiously de-mocratic, is therefore now submitted to the British Public with the fullest confidence that it will be received with exactly the same amount of acclamation as that to which I have become accustomed.
