Upper Division Courses. 104. Old English Literature.
Professor SPAETH. This course aims to give an appreciation of the literary and
culture-historical values of the prose and poetry of the AngloSaxons, While a reading knowledge of Old English is desirable, it is not imperative. The portions of the poetry read and interpreted will be found in Pancoast and Spaeth's Early English Poems (Holt, 1911). There will be introductory lectures on the life, language, and Germanic relationships of the Old English, on the character of Germanic poetry, its forms, rhythms, etc. Some of the Old English charms will be read as illustrating remnants of ancient cult and pagan beliefs. The nature of Germanic Epic will be discussed and selections from the Widsith read and interpreted. The Beowulf will be taken up and the main adventures will be read. The influence of Christianity on Old English literature will then be discussed, and selections from the Younger Genesis will be read, to illustrate the manner in which the Germanic genius assimilated the Biblical narrative. From the study of the Biblical Epic of the Old Eng. lish, the course will proceed to the Christian poems of Cynewulf and the Cynewulfian school. Portions of the Christ, the Phoenix, and the Dream of the Rood will be read and discussed. The Wanderer and the Seafarer will be read as illustrating the secular lyric and elegy of the Old English. Some of the Riddles and the Gnomic verses will also be taken up. The study of the poetry will conclude with the historie war-poems of Brunnanburg and Maldon. The emphasis
throughout will be laid on the interpretation of the poetry itself, rather than on the critical problems connected with authorship, time and place of composition, etc. If time permits, the course will close with a study of the work of
King Alfred as the founder of Old English Prose. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9. 113 California Hall.

Poetry (Macmillan), as reference book. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9. 25 North Hall.
106. Major English Poets of the Nineteenth century.
Professor SPAETH. Lectures, readings, and comment. The fundamental purpose is
to relate poetry to life, by regarding it as the expression of human experience to be applied to the interpretation of human life. Stress will be laid on ethical and philosophical, as well as on aesthetic values. The course will comprise Wordsworth, Byron, and Shelley, Tennyson, Matthew Arnold, Browning, Walt Whitman and the poetry of Democracy. In pursuance of the general aim of the course three methods of approach will be correlated. An' attempt will be made: (1) to give to each of the poets studied his setting on the background of his time, by analyzing the main influences, literary, cultural, and spiritual, that were focused in the personality of each, and found expression in his work; (2) to interpret the poets studied both as men, i.e., creators of human experience, and as artists, i.e., creators of human expression; (3) to elucidate, and, by the reading of concrete poems, to illustrate the message of each of the writers studied, to his own time and to ours. Open, without
prerequisite, to all students in the Summer Session. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 10. 101 California Hall.
