This is a study of the characteristics of the English as revealed their literature throughout the centuries, showing, among other traits, their patriotism and their concern with public affairs and every abiding human interest, which have persisted from the Elizabethans through Milton, Keats, and Wordsworth. A vigorous, stimulating study which remarks, in a tone of celebnration, the English writers' deep concern with the development of man's highest qualities at home and abroad.
