Mr. Copeland's Lecture.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Last evening in Sever 11 Mr. Copeland began his course on the English Novelists with a very interesting lecture on Samuel Richardson. Mr. Copeland compared Richardson to Fielding and pointed out that though neither of them could be considered as the beginner of the English novel, the credit of the new opening in literature was due to both of them. He spoke of three methods of writing a novel, the divine method, the reminiscent, and the letter writing method, and showed how Richardson had tried to combine the first two in the last, and how he had failed to make them lastingly interesting.

Supplementary to this course on the English Novelists, Mr. Copeland will give a lecture on English life in the middle of the eighteenth century, on Friday, Feb. 25, at 4.30 p. m. The next regular lecture will be on Fielding and will be given on Tuesday, March 1.
