Atheneum :-" These ballads are spirited and stirring : such are .The Fall of Harald Hardrada,"Old Benbow,' Marston Moor,' and 'Corpora) John,' the soldier's name for the famous Duke of Marlborough, which is a specially good ballad. 'Queen Eleanor's Vengeance' is a vividly told story. Coming to more modern times, 'The Deeds of Wellington, • Inkerman,' and Balaklava' are excellently well said and sung. As a book of ballade, interesting to all who have British blood in their veids, Dr. Bennett's contribution will be welcome. Dr. Bennett's Ballads will leave a strong impression on the memory of those who read them."
