Excerpt: ... PUBLISHER'S NOTE. With the exception of the articles upon Johns Hopkins University and the University of Minnesota, the contents of this volume are reprinted from The Dial, for which they were originally written, and in which they appeared during 1894. They consist mainly of a series of twenty articles upon the teaching of English in as many American colleges and universities, prepared in each Case by one of the leading department professors of the institution in question; and of an appendix, which includes a few communications and discussions germane to the subject. The great interest aroused in educational circles by these articles has made it seem desirable to republish them in book form. The volume has been edited by Mr. William Morton Payne, of The Dial, whose editorial articles in that review have supplied the basis of the general introduction to the present work, and may be taken as representing the general attitude of The Dial towards the more prominent phases of the discussion. /'fiV*^' f <_27_27_20_-.20_.20_20_120_tj20_it20_i20_v20_.3d_27_27_20_.27_27_20_28_university29_20_the20_teaching20_of20_english.20_introduction.20_the20_methods20_employed20_by20_our20_schools20_in20_the20_teaching20_of20_english20_literature20_have2c_20_for20_some20_years20_past2c_20_been20_in20_a20_transition20_stage2c_20_exhibiting20_a20_strong20_tendency20_towards20_more20_enlightened20_ways20_of20_dealing20_with20_this20_vastly20_important20_subject.20_the20_fermentation20_is20_of20_the20_healthful20_type2c_20_and20_a20_fairly20_clarified20_product20_may20_not20_unreasonably20_be20_expected20_to20_result.20_when20_matthew20_arnold20_declared20_the20_future20_of20_poetry20_to20_be20_immense2c_20_he20_expressed20_a20_truth20_whose20_full20_significance20_may20_be20_realized20_only20_upon20_considerable20_reflection2c_20_and20_the20_assumption20_of20_a20_broadly20_philosophical20_standpoint20_from20_which20_to20_view20_the20_coming20_conquests20_of20_culture.20_the20_same20_idea20_was20_expressed2c_20_with20_something20_of20_humorous20_exaggeratio... -.="" .='' 1="" tj="" it="" i="" v="" _.27_27_="" _28_university29_="" the="" teaching="" of="" english.="" introduction.="" methods="" employed="" by="" our="" schools="" in="" english="" literature="" _have2c_="" for="" some="" years="" _past2c_="" been="" a="" transition="" _stage2c_="" exhibiting="" strong="" tendency="" towards="" more="" enlightened="" ways="" dealing="" with="" this="" vastly="" important="" subject.="" fermentation="" is="" healthful="" _type2c_="" and="" fairly="" clarified="" product="" may="" not="" unreasonably="" be="" expected="" to="" result.="" when="" matthew="" arnold="" declared="" future="" poetry="" _immense2c_="" he="" expressed="" truth="" whose="" full="" significance="" realized="" only="" upon="" considerable="" _reflection2c_="" assumption="" broadly="" philosophical="" standpoint="" from="" which="" view="" coming="" conquests="" culture.="" same="" idea="" was="" _expressed2c_="" something="" humorous="">
