Greek Literature Discussed

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Dr. B. A. G. Fuller, Professor C. N. Jackson, and Mr. G. G. Sedgwick spoke before the Classical Conference in Harvard Hall yesterday afternoon on the general topic of Greek literature.

Dr. Fuller took as his subject "Alastor" and in his discussion of the subject brought out the question whether Alastor was a mere personification of divine justice or an individual spirit.

Professor Jackson spoke on "Ridicule as a Principle of Action in Greek Literature," pointing out that the fear of derisive laughter influenced Greek conduct to such an extent that it had great effect on important actions.

Mr. G. G. Sedgwick's subject was "The Dramatic Technique of 'The Suppliants' of Aeschylus."
