Abstract
The advantage, to both teacher and high school pupil, to be derived from having easy access to the data and material for a study of Scott’s "The Lady of the Lake", has urged the author of these pages to assemble this information.|Inasmuch as the understanding of the story of the poem is difficult to young students, the chapter containing the subject matter has been inserted to clarify the story.|The compact facts presented in the treatment of the various phases of the poem have been culled from reliable authors. Teacher and pupil desiring more details will have no difficulty in finding them in the references‘indicated.|Although the poem offers endless possibilities for study and pleasure, the high school freshman or sophomore for whom this study has been planned, will benefit adequately for the present, and will, it is hoped, have a basis for future work along the same lines.|The author desires to acknowledge gratefully her obligations to the Library of the University of Edinburgh, to the Creighton University Library, to the Omaha Public Library, and to the St. Louis Public Library for services that have made this work possible. Especially is the author deeply indebted and sincerely grateful to all who have so unstintingly aided her in this undertaking, particularly to Prof. H. F. Fore of the Department of English, the Creighton University, for his painstaking reading of this work, almost every page of which owes something to his keen and thoughtful criticism.
