THE professor in German VI., after completing the very interesting tragedy, Emilia Galotti, by Lessing, expects to take up Wieland's Oberon. The selection seems a poor one and cannot interest the students. Wieland's works cannot be compared with those of Lessing, Goethe, and Schiller. Goethe's Faust was read in this course last year and proved to be uninteresting and too hard for the students; why take up Wieland's Oberon, a work even harder to understand? Why make the student read works containing forms no longer in use, when he is not familiar with modern forms of speech? The majority of students expect to make some practical use of their German and do not wish to read German for its literature only.
