Paul in Raleigh
It covers samples of writings by Geoffrey Chaucer to more
modern writers; such as, Steven Vincent Benet. There are even
some Shakespeare samples contained in the work. For instance,
"Where the bee sucks, there suck I:
In a cowslip's bell I lie;
There I couch when owls do cry"
On the bat's back , I do fly
After summer merrily,
Merrily, merrily, shall I live now,
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough! from The Tempest"
The work is perfect for an all-inclusive collegiate course
in English literature. The style of writing is elegant.
This volume depicts the English language utilization in its
finest mode. In addition, a strength of the work is that it
contains a smudgeon of the olde English conventions and
style of writing.
