"This collection of specimens of Latin poetry is intended to be a companion volume to the Eight Lectures given in America in 1893, and subsequently published (Houghton and Mifflin, Boston; Macmillan, London) under the title of Latin poetry in 1895 I have called the collection Latin Anthology, as the most convenient title available; but that is not really the most accurate description which could be given of the contents or the aim of the volume. An anthology ought to contain only exquisite models of poetic composition. Now this collection aims at providing characteristic specimens of Latin poetry."
