THE GERMAN POETS
OF THE 18TH AND 19TH CENTURIES
HENRY S. KING & CO., LONDON
N the following Translations the principal
object has been to preserve strict fidelity; the original metres have been, with very few exceptions, carefully preserved. Thus it is hoped that while those unacquainted with the originals may have some idea of them here presented, German scholars will find their old favourites in a garb not wholly unsuited to them.
A few Poems are by another hand than
that of the Translator of the main portion
of them. These are distinguished by initials.
