Overview

The Book of Old English Ballads by George Wharton Edwards

Book of Old English Ballads is an English poetry classic by George Wharton Edwards.

Goethe, who saw so many things with such clearness of vision, brought out the charm of the popular ballad for readers of a later day in his remark that the value of these songs of the people is to be found in the fact that their motives are drawn directly from nature; and he added, that in the art of saying things compactly, uneducated men have greater skill than those who are educated. It is certainly true that no kind of verse is so completely out of the atmosphere of modern writing as the popular ballad.

Is there anywhere online to read DC for free? I'm no where near a comic-store, and Trinity War remains Unavailable in the Library system.

Zatanna sits in the Shadowcrest library, flipping through an old spell book.

This book is really bad. I can't understand it at all. A lot of words are not spelled right. They can't even spell Monday right, they spell it like this: Munday. I wish I had not gotten this book. I hope this helps.
