Mr. Copeland's Lecture Tonight.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The subject of Mr. Copeland's fourth lecture-to be given in Sever 11 at 8 o'clock this evening-is Tobias Smollett, author of "Roderick Random," "Peregrine Pickle," and "Humphrey Clinker." The lecture will be part biography, part criticism. In the treatment of Smollet's work, his novels will be discussed not only in themselves, but in their degree of contrast to the novels of Fielding and Thackeray, and their degree of likeness to those of Dickens.

The reading will include a portion of what Thackeray wrote about Smollett in "The English Humourists of the Eighteenth Century."
