"Vocal Imagination, the Merger of Form and Content," will be the subject of Robert Frost's second lecture in the Charles Eliot Norton series to be delivered in the New Lecture Hall at 8 o'clock this evening.
Entitling his complete series "The Renewal of Words," Mr. Frost delivered the opening talk last Wednesday on "The Old Way to Be New." In this meeting, he emphasized the importance of sincerity and originality in writing poetry. Citing several incidents in his own boyhood, the poet discussed the goals he thought should be aimed at by young writers.
The dates and titles of the four remaining lectures are; March 18, "Does Wisdom Signify"; March 25, "Poetry as Prowess (Feat of Words)"; April 8, "Before the Beginning of a Poem," and April 25, "After the End of a Poem."
Established in 1925 by Charles C. Stillman '98 in memory of Charles Eliot Norton '46, professor of the History of Art, the Norton Chair of Poetry must be held by a man of "high distinction and international reputation."
