The Children's Own Longfellow free pdf Excerpt from The Children's Own Longfellow: Illustrated The universal teaching of reading to the English people for the last forty years, unaccompanied by any effective organisation for regulating it on literary lines, has led to the issue of a gradually increasing body of books, periodicals, and papers, written to catch the popular taste, in which sensationalism has taken the place of legitimate romance, style is neglected or affected, and false impressions of life amongst all classes of society are conveyed by ignorant, or only half-informed writers. The study of poetry, which served as a corrective to these ignoble tendencies before they had become pronounced, has not only been set back by the enormous output of prose fiction, for the most part of an unworthy order, but also suffers, even among our more serious readers, from the modern tendency to neglect all literature in favour of science in one or other of its now multitudinous forms. It is true, as Lord Morley recently remarked, that a certain proportion of our great scientific writers have acquired a good prose style- it is true also that Browning and Tennyson have given direct or indirect response to the popular craving for one or other of these forms of scientific teaching- but the fact remains that, as a rule, the modern reader of science is not also a reader of poetry.
