THE ANGEL IN THE HOUSE 

INTRODUCTION. 

There could be but one answer to the suggestion of Mr.  Coventry
Patmore that his "Angel in the House" might usefully have a place in
this "National Library." The suggestion was made with the belief
that wide and cheap diffusion would not take from the value of a
copyright library edition, while the best use of writing is
fulfilled by the spreading of verse dedicated to the sacred love of
home.  The two parts of the Poem appeared in 1854 and 1856, were
afterwards elaborately revised, and have since obtained a permanent
place among the Home Books of the English People.  Our readers will
join, surely, in thanks to the author for the present he has made
us.
