105. Restoration and Eighteenth Century English Literature.
Professor Axson. A course in literary history from Dryden to Burns, in which the indi
vidual characteristics of each author will be noted, but especial emphasis laid on the relationship of each to the literary tendencies of his age; the relation of these tendencies to the political, social, and philosophic history of the nation. Some of the topics which will arise for discussion are, the nature of so-called “Classicism," the Restoration Drama, Satiric Literature in Prose and Verse, the Romantic Revolt, the Return to Nature Idea, Democracy in Literature, the Rise of the Novel. The ideal library for the course consists of the original works of each important author from John Dryden to Robert Burns, but as this is beyond expectation, it is suggested that much of the representative verse of the period can be read in Walter C. Bronson's “English Poems of the Restoration and Eighteenth Century" (University of Chicago Press). The plays, essays, and novels are to be had only in separate volumes.
2 units. M Tu W Th F, 10. 101 California Hall.

108. Nineteenth Century Literature.
Professor Axson. Poetry and prose from Wordsworth to Kipling. In this course there
will be some regard for literary history, but everything will be subordinate to the interpretive and critical study of the authors as individual writers; authors included will be Wordsworth, Scott, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Browning, Tennyson, Dickens, Thackeray, Hawthorne, George Eliot, Carlyle, Emerson, Ruskin, Matthew Arnold, Longfellow, Poe, Stevenson, and Kipling. The
works of the authors themselves are the basis of study. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 11. 101 California Hall.
209. The Older English Novel.
Mr. BLANCHARD. Although the main outline of the course will endeavor to show the
development of English fiction from Defoe to Scott, neither the assigned reading nor the lectures will be limited to novels of the eighteenth century. Where possible the bearing of the eighteenth century upon the later development of the novel will be shown,
both in respect to kind and technique. 1 unit. MW F, 9. 19 North Hall.
210. Tennyson's Idylls of the King and the Arthurian Saga. Dr. CORY. The lectures will center in an elaborate examination of Tennyson's
poem. Its right to be considered as the representative epic of the nineteenth century; comparison with typical epics of other ages. Fundamental conception of the epic; discussion of the theory that the novel has supplanted the epic. While the origins of the Arthurian story, its florescence in the twelfth century, and the prose epic of Malory will receive incidental treatment it will be solely for the purpose of understanding more clearly how Tennyson and his age moulded the material and made it expressive of our times. Similarly a few of Tennyson's contemporaries, Wagner, Arnold, Swinburne, and others will be discussed for comparative purposes. Any complete and reliable edition of The Idylls of the King will serve as a text. Supplementary reading in the older versions will be assigned from time to time. Malory's Morte D'Arthur in the Everyman's Library edition, the Globe edition or the Temple Classics edition is
recommended. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 2. 19 North Hall.
