Charles M. Gayley, professor of English Language and Literature in the Univerity of California, and formerly assistant professor of the same subjects at the University of Michigan, has edited a work which has just been published by Ginn and Co., which will be of great service to students of English literature. The title of the work is "Classic Myths in English Literature," and has forits basis Bulfinch's -'Age of Fable," which was written in 1855. It was Prof. Gayley's design, and he has succeeded in it most admirably. to make his work suitable for a text-book ov the subject. Conseqiiently this work filis a long feit want, and it cannot but meet a hearty reception at the hands of students of English literature who want a short and concise treatise on classical myths, which enter so freely into the English classics.
