Bible Narratives in Verse

Author: Mrs. Marshman
Publisher: J. F. Shaw and Co.
Publish Date: 1886

We cannot say much for the poetry or even  for the rhyme of these narratives, but then they are not set before us as competitions in versification. They are meant for young folks to help their memories concerning holy things; and we think they will in many cases accomplish the good design. We like the narratives better in their native state; but if any will read them in verse who would have neglected them in prose, it is a good work to versify them.
