Lang, Andrew, critic and man of letters, was born in 1844. He was educated at St. Andrews and Balliol College, Oxford, and was elected a fellow of Merton in 1868. Besides doing an immense amount of journalistic work, he has devoted himself especially to scientific mythology, anthropology, and folk-lore. He has translated with Professor Butcher the Odyssey of Homer, and, with Messrs. Leaf and Myers, the Iliad; and has by himself produced fine renderings of Theocritus, of Perrault's Fairy Tales, and of Aucassin et Nicolette. He has also written several volumes of delicate original verse.
