SOME USEFUL BOOKS.
U. oF M. MEN IN THE LITERARY
WORLD.
The Work of Professors Scott and
Gayley-
As many of our readers already
know, Profs. Gayley and Scott
spent the last vacation in literary
work. The earliest fruit of their
labors is the '' Guide to the Liter-
ature of iEsthet"cs,' which has
already been spoken of in these
columns. They have also in pro-
fess of completion4 "A Handbook
of Literary Criticism." This
book will soon be placed in the
bands of the publishers and will
probably be ready for the use of
the students in Prof. Scott's pop-
ular course in Literary Criticism.
Besides an index to all the lit-
erature on the subject there
is a large amount of material
which will be of great value to
the student. This will comprise
outlines of study for graduate
students, outlines for essays with
references and comments, and
topics for study. The index in-
cludes not only all the literature
on the subject to be found in our
library, but also very much which
Prof. Scott hopes to be able to
secure for the library in the near
future. The book will be used at
California and Columbia Univer-
sities during the present year.
The same gentlemen have also
b gther book in view, part of it
being indeed already written. The
-AEsthetics of Literature is to be a
manual of some three hundred
pages, and will take up the sub-
ject from the theoretical and the
comparative sides, and will dis-
cuss all the fundamental problems
of classification of literature, of
the science of style, the differen-

tiation of literary types, and the
law of the evolution of literature.
The book will embody much of
the original research of both the
authors, and many of the advanced
ideas of both will be found in its
pages. While both work together
in the preparation of the book,
the more cesthetic portions of the
book will be written by Prof.
Scott, while Prof. Gayley will
take up more definitely the discus-
sion of literary types. It is not
expected that the work will be
issued as a text book, but if there
seems to be a demand for such a
work in that form it may be so
issued. They will probably de-
vote another year to the work,
which will probably not appear
until some time late in '91.
