Excerpt from A Century of French Poets, Being a Selection Illustrating the History of French Poetry During the Last Hundred Years I wish to thank my friend Mr. Belloc for his advice, and above all for the kindly spur he has so insistently applied to this undertaking. The idea of the book, or of some such book, was his; and it is quite certain that it would never have got finished if his interest had not been proof against my laches.
