HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH
THE USE OF THE JUNIOR CLASSES IN COLLEGES
AND THE HIGHER CLASSES IN SCHOOLS.
GEORGE L. CRAIK,
PROFESSOR OF HISTORY AND OF ENGLISH LITERATURE IN
QUEEN'S COLLEGE, BELFAST.
One of the duties of the Professors of History and of English Literature in the Queen's University, Ireland, is to teach for one Term a Class entitled of the English Language, composed of students of the first year. The present OUTLINES are an abstract from part of the course of Lectures which has been delivered to that Class at Belfast for the last two Sessions; the business of the Class being conducted by means of Critical Readings, and Exercises in Essay-writing, as well as by Examinations upon the Lectures.
The work, however, has been drawn up in such a manner as to present a connected though succinct view of the essentials of the subject, and therefore to be suited both for the general reader and for being used as a Text-book in any place of education in which English Philology is one of the departments of study.
