The following text of Macaulay's poem derives from that on the Project Gutenberg website, which John T. Horner and David Widger scanned and proof-read. I have divided their text into nine sections and converted it to Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), attempting to follow as closely as possible a page design created by Glen Burris of the Johns Hopkins University Press for my Hypertext (1991), Hypertext 2.0 1997), and Hypertext 3.0 (2007). My html follows the Gutenberg text of Horner and Widger closely, differing chiefly in the formatting of poetry, first lines of chapters, and those following quotations.

If you encounter any typographical errors or problems of formatting, please let me know [February 2005].
