Excerpt from Reading Poems: An Introduction to Critical Study The editors have made no effort to provide a critical text of thepoems, but have proceeded upon the principle of making them as 'available' as possible for the ordinary reader. For this reason Spelling has been modernized and Americanized except in a few cases where old Spelling or dialect forms are required for the full experience of the poem. Thus Milton, Spenser, Drayton, Burns, and the old ballads are based upon standard critical editions. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
