Winter Issue of Comparative Literature Magazine^
Features Article on Dryden by University Professor
The winter issue of Comparative
Literature has just appeared with
a new, brighter cover and an
article by John C. Sherwood, as
sistant professor of English, at
Sherwood’s article, “Dryden and
the Rules: The Preface to ‘Troilus
and Cressida,’ ” is the first one
written by a University of Oregon
professor to be published in the
magazine, printed here by the
University press.
Said Sherwood, “The article is
intended to show how Dryden ap
plied the rules of the French neo
classical critics to the criticism of
Shakespeare, and to show that the
rules did not interfere with his
appreciation of Shakespeare.”
Among the other material in
this issue is “Franco-German Lit
erary Relations: A Survey of
Problems,” by Henri-Peyre, head of
the French department at Yale
University, and one or the few
foreigners heading a department
in the United States.
The content of his article is that
“the literary relations between
France and Germany in the last
century and a half are numerous
and important enough to deserve
a great deal of further study,”
according to Chandler B. Beall,
editor of Comparative Literature.
Peyre points out that for schol
ars studying French or German
literature for this period, it is
more important to know both
languages than to know medieval
French or German. He believes
that it is more advantageous to
study the views of German poets
and writers on ancient French
literature than to study the anci
ent French, or vice versa.
A. Lytton Sells, in his article
entitled “Zanella, Coleridge, and
Shelley,” studies the influence of
Coleridge and Shelley on the Ital
ian poet Zanella, in the Nineteenth
The only article in this issue
which is not in English, and the
first one in Spanish to be published
by Comparative Literature, is “Los
tratos de Argel’’ by Joachuin Cas
alduero. The title is that of the
first play by Cervantes and, says
Beall, is “a long, detailed, excellent
study of the play.”
“Edmund Gayton on Don Quix
ote, Andres, and Juan Haldudo,”
by Edward M. Wilson, studies the
attitude of the Seventeenth Cent
ury English writer towards certain
episodes in “Don Quixote.”
Copies of Comparative Litera
ture may be obtained in the office
of the University Editor in
Friendly Hall. Single copies are
priced at $1, and year’s subscrip
tions cost $3.50.

the American Museum of Natural
History, New York, will speak on

Xi and the University Lecture
Series, will discuss “The History

|Dr. Simpson has won many

tory, and has published a number
of books, the last being “The
Meaning of Evolution,” published
at Yale in 1949. He has made more
than 10 field expeditions in this
country, Argentina, Venezuela,
