C. Day Lewis will give the Charles Eliot Norton lectures at Harvard next year. Walter J. Bate '39, Abbot Lawrence Lowell Professor of Humanities, said last night. Day Lewis is former professor of Poetry at Oxford University and one of Britain's noted contemporary poets.
No Norton lectures are planned for this year. According to Dean Ford's office, they are omitted every few years because of a lack of sufficient funds. The Norton lecturers receive the highest Harvard professorial salary, and the annual lecture fund is not sufficient to allow scheduling the lectures every year.
The last three sets of lectures have been by Eric Bentley on literature, Plor Luigi Nervi on architecture, and Leo Schrude on music and drama.
Day Lewis was born in Ireland in 1994 and attended Oxford. He taught there until 1935 and was an editor for the British Ministry of Information during World War II. From 1951 through 1965 by held his Oxford professorship, and he is currently a member of the Arts Council in Britain.
