1 MILTON, John). OSGOOD, Charles Grosvenor Yale Studies in English 08 OSGOOD, Charles Grosvenor Classical Mythology of Milton's English Poems. Yale Studies in English No.8. First Edition.
Henry Holt and Company, New York, 1900, 
(MILTON, John). OSGOOD, Charles Grosvenor. The Classical Mythology of Milton's English Poems. Yale Studies in English VIII. New York : Henry Holt and Company, 1900. First Edition. Pp 111. Index. Errata. 8vo, wrappers. "The student who diligently peruses the lines of a great poem may go far toward a realization of its character. He may appreciate, in a degree, its loveliness, strength, and direct hold upon the catholic truth of life. But he will be more sensitive to these appeals, and receive gifts that are richer and less perishable, according as he comprehends the forces by whose interaction the poem was produced. These are of two kinds-- the innate forces of the poet's character, and certain more external forces, such as, in the case of Milton, are represented by Hellenism and Hebraism. Their activity is greatest where they meet and touch, and at this point their nature and measure aremost easily discerned. From a contemplation of the poem in its genesis one returns to a deeper understanding and enjoyment of it as a completed whole . The present study, though it deals with but one of the important culturalinfluences affecting Milton, and with it but in part, endeavors by this me thod to deepen and clarify the appreciation of his art and teaching." - from the preface." Spine ends chipped, some edgewear to covers, tear along half of front spine hinge, else very good. 50.00
