       Additional Information  
     
      Charles Kingsley was an English clergyman and novelist. He was the founding member of the Christian Socialist movement and was known for his controversy with Cardinal Newman. He was a chaplain to Queen Victoria, a rector at Eversley, Hampshire and was sympathetic to the Chartists. Found in this volume is Hereward the Wake, the hero of our youth, who reappears at last in a guise fitted for a modern drawing room. Thomas Wright first disinterred him, long ago, when scarcely a hand or foot of him was left standing out from beneath the dust of ages. Wright taught Kingsley how to furbish his rusty harness, botch his bursten saddle, and send him forth once more, upon the ghost of his gallant mare.
