KIRKUS REVIEW

An important book for the home library, an essential for public libraries and college and high school libraries. An anthology which consists not of the stereotyped classic writers of English prose, but the prose of all nations, where available in good English translations, such prose as lives up to the editor's acid test -- ""that its matter should be alive"". Chinese, Japanese, Sanscrit, Arabian, Persian, Hebrew, Egyptian, Greek, Latin, Italian, Spanish, French, German, Scandinavian, Russian, English, Irish, American --sources and translations were tapped, and yielded up rich harvest. Not a book for quick over-the-counter sales, but a book for stock and the long haul.
