Lectures and Essays, edited by F. Haverfield, was first published in 1895. It contains the published articles of Henry Nettleship (1839-1893) on Latin literature not included in the collection Lectures and Essays on Subjects Connected with Latin Literature and Scholarship (1885), along with one unpublished essay. The volume begins with a memoir written by Nettleship's wife, focusing on his progressive approach towards educational reform and modernisation. The collection includes essays on contemporary scholars such as the Danish philologist Madvig (1804-1886); the poet Juvenal; the earliest Latin grammarians; literary criticism in antiquity; and on the state of English education in the nineteenth century, including the influential essay 'On the Present Relations between Classical Research and Classical Education in England'. This collection of lectures and essays is a valuable source representing the work of an eminent Victorian scholar and educational reformer who made a lasting contribution to Latin studies.
