Excerpt from Live Issues in Classical Study
In an age of educational unrest the present moment is vitally concerned with the present and future status of the classics. Classical Associations are springing up every where. Curricula are being made and unmade. German and English scholars are urging the broadening of the scope of Greek and Latin reading. Great metropolitan journals are protesting against discrimination by American colleges in the matter of material equipment to the dis advantage of the classics. Educational meetings are seri ously discussing defects in classical teaching. If the essays in this little volume should contribute at all to the ultimate solution of some of these great problems, the author's modest hope would be fully realized.
Of the four essays here published, the second and third, previously printed respectively in the Southern Methodist Review and the Classical Weekly, have been revised and are here reproduced in the hope that thus they may reach a somewhat larger public.
