This is the first complete American edition of this standard poet, published in a handsome and enduring form.

“ Happiness of nature and felicity of genius are the pre-eminent characteristics of the bard of Erin. Every thing lives, moves, and speaks, in his poetry. His thoughts are as many and as bright as the insects that people the sun beam.' He exhausts by being inexhaustible."- Hazlitt. “ Thomas Moore has unquestionably attained the highest reputation as a lyric poet.

In grace, both of thought and diction, in easy fluent wit, in nielody, in brilliancy of fancy, in warmth and depth of sentiment, no one is superior to Moore; his celebrated oriental romance, Lalla Rookh," the four tales to which and the frame-work which unites them having been compared, in the · Edinburgh Review,' to four beautiful pearls joined together by a thread of silk and gold."
