AT the beginning of the term, Professor Child expressed a wish that the section in English might enter upon the study of Chaucer with that zeal which the importance of the subject demands, and that a working body of Chaucer students might ere long grow up in our midst; mentioning at the same time Professor Tyler's large and enthusiastic classes at Michigan University. It is a strange thing that at Harvard, the very seat of New England culture, our own noble literature should be neglected, when Boston University has a Shakspere Club, and Cornell a Browning Society. And therefore we wish to call especial attention to the work of the Chaucer Society, founded mainly by Professor Child and Mr. F. J. Furnivall.
