THE ENGLISH DRAMA

ITS RISE AND DEVELOPMENT TO THE CLOSING OF
THE THEATERS (1640)

By Thomas R. Price, LL.D., Professor of the English Language and
Literature, George Edward Woodberry, Professor of Literature, and A. V.
Williawis Jackson, Adjunct Professor of the English Language and Litera-
ture, Columbia College

The course will be supplemented by special class lectures held on other days to
be appointed. This extra work will give fuller details, present authors not treated
in the regular lectures, and will show the connections between the periods.

i In preparing the syllabus for this introductory series all attempt at
exhaustive treatment has been intentionally avoided; brevity and
simplicity have been the chief aim.

2 References at the end of each lecture have been purposely limited

in number. The choice has been influenced by a variety of
reasons; the practical view has not been lost sight of. It is de-
sired that the student should acquire method by making his own
bibliography for each subject. A convenient list to serve as a
beginning follows lecture 10.

3 In every case the student is advised, as far as possible, to read the

plays themselves, and to form his own judgment before turning
to the opinion of others upon the works. A general knowledge
of each author's life, period and works is, at the outset, of course,
essential.

4 Topics for papers given under each lecture have, in every case,

been limited to three. In preparing a paper on any topic sug-
gested, the student is requested to use a 7x8 inch page; to write
only on one side and to leave i\ inch margin on right for com-
ments; to number each page; to add on the last page, in tabular
form, an outline of points treated in paper; to write name and
address, with date. Above all, clearness and brevity of state-
ment, logical method of treatment and sequence in the arrange-
ment of paragraphs are requested.
