The selections that make up this Handbook, while fairly rep resentative, so far as they go, of the authors from whose works they are taken, are not to be regarded as introductions to the authors as such, still less as studies in the history and development of English prose literature. They are simply, as the title indi cates, extracts to be analyzed, in style and structure, for the pur pose of forming, from actual examples, some intelligent conception of what the making of good literature involves: taken from the best writers, because it is safer to study models of excellence than examples of error; taken from several writers, because it is not wise to make an exclusive model of any one author's work, how ever excellent; and taken for the most part from recent writers, not because these are better than writers of earlier time, but because they are more likely to illustrate the usages practically needed in this century.
