IN making a selection of American Prose the

principle which controlled in American Poems has been followed. The book does not profess to be representative of the authors included, but complete papers or stories have been taken of a length permitting a fair display of some of the author's characteristics. The object has been to set before the reader some of the higher forms of prose art as interpreted by American writers, and to cultivate a taste for the enduring elements of literature. As bofore, an attempt has been made to lead the student from the simpler to the more involved and subtle forms, and throughout the book the literature of knowledge has been less regarded than the literature of power. The best result will be reached if those who use this volume are impelled to ask for the fuller works of the authors whose acquaintance as writers of prose they may here make.
