6. In his preface to A Literary History of Spain. Catalan Literature, pp.xvi-xvii, Terry explains: 'In this, as in the rest of the book, my chief aim has been to provide the reader with clear and, as far as possible, accurate introduction to a literature which I hope he will be encouraged to explore for himself', and in his introduction to Ausias March, Selected Poems, (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 1976) pp.1-25, p.1, he openly declares his desire to place March where he belongs in European literature. He writes: 'A bilingual anthology of the poetry of Ausias March (1397-1459) seems justified for several reasons. In the first place, because he is unquestionably a major writer, the finest poet working enywhere in Europe between Chaucer an Villon -that is to say, in the first part of the fifteenth century.'

19. In his 'Prleg' to Sobre poesia catalana contempornia, p.8, Terry states: 'Evidentment, cap mtode crtic no s capa d'exhaurir, ell sol, una obra d'una certa complexitat: sempre s difcil de posar en relleu una cosa sense deixar-ne una altra a l'ombra; el punt de vista que ens serveix per comprendre una obra determinada pot resultar inadequat en el cas d'una altra.'

Veny tells us: 'com la magnfica Catalan Literature (1972), traduda al castell (1977), que he rellegit amb delectana: a ms d'omplir un buit _i no s un tpic_ en aquest tipus de treballs, l'obra, destinada a estrangers, va constituir un estmul entre lectors castellanoparlants _i tamb catalans!_ a l'exploraci de la nostra literatura', p.6.
