PREFACE .

faqe S this edition of The Lady of the Lake is intended for

Junior students, no apology is needed either for the short and simple character of the notes, or for the length of the glossary. I have tried to make both explanatory rather than illustrative, because I thought that the class of students for whom this edition is primarily intended would be hindered rather than helped by illustrative quotations and etymological discussions, such as would naturally be included in an edition designed for more advanced readers.

The text of The Lady of the Lake has recently been carefully revised by Mr Rolfe and by Professor Minto. In this edition I have followed Professor Minto's text, with only one or two trifling changes, which are referred to, where they occur, in the notes. I have added a short glossary of Gaelic names, for which I am chiefly indebted to Robertson's Gaelic Topography. I have tried to indicate the cases where his interpretations are not generally accepted; but any detailed discussion of the questions at issue would be out of place.

I have made free use of previous editions of the poem, and also of Scott's notes, where they seemed suitable.
