Williamson Author of Book
Ranking High With Scholars
umie of University Will Penetrate Remote
Corners of Europe; ‘The Donne
Tradition,’ Title of Work
1CA^ Villard hall, on the University of Oregon campus, comes a
book of such genuine value and significance that it ranks as one
of the most important books that has ever been written in that bat
haunted building. This book is “The Donne Tradition,” written by
George Williamson, assistant professor in the English department, and
came off the Harvard Press this spring.
“While the book was not calculated to sweep the nation,” Pat
Morrisette, instructor in English and author, said, commenting on it,
even in our own country it should have an immediate success in those
rare places where poetry and scholarship are human and real. The
i book carries the name of the Uni-.)
I versity in remote corners of Eng
& land, France and Italy, where men
like Read, Legouis (the younger),
and Praz are engaged in revalu
ating Donne in the light of a
changing age and of a growing in
terest in metaphysical poetry.
‘‘The difficulty of interpreting
Donne is well known, and this dif
; ficulty is complicated by the fact
that Donne had a great and cu- i
rious mind. Williamson has
thought out these difficulties with
such strength and simplicity that
the inarticulateness and obscurity
of Donne's packed style become
“Williamson's work is individual
and carries the stamp of his own
mind. To,him does not belong the
art of borrowing opinions to
thread upon a thin scaffolding of
( meager thought. He rebukes con
clusions of men like Courthope
with more accuracy than offense;
he corrects a long-standing error
of Dr. Johnson, and he does all
this in the interest of good taste,
and with such a sure accuracy,
and with such trenchant simplicity
that there is hardly a page of the
book that does not bear the hard,
clear mark of scholarly precision. I

Williamson’s book begins with a
description of Donne and the mor
bid aura of death which he calls
“Donne’s Shroud.” He gives the
nature of the tradition, its back
ground, development, decline, and
extinction in the reaction which
followed Dryden. The trinity of
Donne's genius (his mysticism, his
logic, and his passionate intensity)
is traced through the century; and

Rogue Song” this week at the Mc
Donald theatre, for each audience
falls harder than the preceeding
for his matchless baritone. All in
technicolor, this MGM offering is
bringing glory to the box office as
well as giving the public what it
wants in the way of artistic cin
ema production. And, by the way,
Laurel and Hardy are still “cry
ing” about something or other.
George Arliss, that fascinating
exponent of dramatic expression,
need never fear of public disap
proval, for he has the real some
thing that is genuine, and the pub
lic knows it. He is subtle, shrewd,
polished, and a whole page of such
complimentary adjectives in his
new production "The Green God
dess,” which deals with vengeance,
cruel, hard and unrelenting.
Now to turn to something light
er, w-e have “The Taming of the
Shrew" at the Colonial. Mary and
Doug haven’t forgotten any of
their old tricks and the comedy
situations are quite hilarious.
“Framed” at the Rex proves

mystery stuff. Evelyn Brent, hero

PREXY HITS ANNUALS
Annuals as memoirs of college
years are fast becoming obsolete
in the opinion of Girtcn Viereck
president of the Associated Stu

the assembled executives of the
Pacific Coast Student Presidents
association, held last week on the
northern campus, voiced the opin

longer create interest and cannot
pay for themselves.
Tom Stoddard, Oregon proxy, is
reported by the University oi
Washington Daily to have outlinec
the policy of yearbook subscrip

of other publications. Stoddard
however, spoke against the P. X. P,

CO-ED SMOKING ARGUED
Up at the University of Wash
ington they seem to be having
quite a time deciding whether or
no the fair sex may be officially
deemed cigarette smokers. The
ban on smoking among the co-eds
which came up for consideration
recently seems, in all probability,
on the verge of death. The admin
istration is to be the official arbi
trater, but printed statements of
the Dean of Women indicate that
no attempt will be made to dictate
to the students.
