Opis: Cyclop?dia of Poetry - Foster Elon

Excerpt from Cyclopdia of Poetry: Second Series; Embracing Poems Descriptive of the Scenes, Incidents, Persons and Places of the Bible, Also Indexes to Foster's Cyclopdias
The Christian poets of all ages have delighted amid Bible scenes and personages, and have derived their highest inspirations from them. They sing of Abel, Abraham, Cain, Daniel, Elijah, Judas, Moses, Paul, Peter, and the great host of Bible worthies and sometimes unworthies. They gaze into Eden and into the New Jarusalem, walk about Jericho and about Zion, and tune David's harp anew. They portray Pharaoh's overthrow, Nebuchadnezzar's doom, and Babylon's downfall. The scenes of the Old and the incidents of the New Testament have alike "strung and turned their lyres." Scarcely a scene, character, event, or place of the Bible but has been the theme of song.
This volume is a Cyclopdia of Sacred Poetry, limited to the scenes, incidents, persons, and places of the Bible. Its object is to bring to the focus of an alphabet all the desirable material in this department of poetic literature. It is intended to be comprehensive, and as nearly exhaustive as could be desired in such a work.
The editor has made a special study of the whole field from which appropriate material could be drawn. Rare volumes have furnished their quota. Nearly all the standard poets are represented here. The magazines of a hundred years have yielded their stores. The "Lyra" books and the "Lays of Bible Lands" have been searched through. Some whose works are out of print, as Rev. William Knox and George Croly, LL. D., will be found here as in no other available volume. Many original contributions have been made to this volume that are not unworthy of a place among the masterpieces of poesy. Hymns have been generally excluded. The poems are given without abridgment or amendment.
The method of the volume is alphabetical, and its subjects may be as readily found as words in a dictionary. The superiority of the arrangement is shown by the fact that all the great Cyclopdias adopt it.
This book will be an appropriate companion of the Bible, in the pastor's library or on the center-table of the family. From the scenes in that immortal book it will ever be a pleasure to turn to their poetical representations in this.
