The basic importance of English in schools is the basis for this book. Following an introduction to George Sampson by the editor Denys Thompson, a preliminary by the author discusses the half-century that has passed since the enactment of the Education Act of 1870 in England. The place of the English language and literature in the early stages of education is discussed in Chapter ii. Six aspects of the English course--training in speech, training in talk, training in listening, training in writing, training in study, and the introduction to literature--are considered in detail in Chapter iii. The author's conclusion is presented in Chapter iv. Four brief notes and an index conclude the book. (Db)

The golden ass by Apuleius( Book )

3 editions published in 1904 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With accuracy, wit, and intelligence, this remarkable new translation of The Golden Ass breathes new life into Apuleius's classic work. Sarah Ruden, a lyric poet as well as a highly respected translator, skillfully duplicates the verbal high jinks of Apuleius's ever-popular novel. It tells the story of Lucius, a curious and silly young man, who is turned into a donkey when he meddles with witchcraft. Doomed to wander from region to region and mistreated by a series of deporable owners, Lucius at last is restored to human form with the help of the goddess Isis. In a translation that is the most faithful and the most entertaining to date, Ruden reveals to modern readers the vivid, farcical ingenuity of Apuleius's style."--Inside jacket flap
