Note 1. The River Title] Faded Leaves. I. The River 1855. In this edition the poems are printed in the order of their first publication. In reprinting them in later editions of his poems Arnold rearranged several in two groups under the headings Switzerland and Faded Leaves, varying the number of poems thus grouped and the constitution of the groups from time to time. The critical notes below each poem give full information about these changes of title; for convenient reference the final arrangement is given here:
I. Meeting (The Lake).
III. A Farewell.
IV. Isolation. To Marguerite (To Marguerite).
V. To MargueriteContinued (To Marguerite, in returning a volume of Letters of Ortis).
VII. The Terrace at Berne.
FADED LEAVES (1855):
I. The River.
II. Too Late.
IV. On the Rhine.
To my Friends who ridiculed a tender leave-taking and A Dream are in the final arrangement not included among the Switzerland poems, though they appear in this group in the 1854 and 1857 editions. [back]
