The English Department is currently forming a new Counselling Program. In the future English Concen-
trators iri the General Program and in the Teaching Certificate Program do not have to see a Counsellor for most
matters. Counsellors are available, however, and students are urged to request an appointment to discuss any
matter of concern. Appointments may be made through the Counselling Office, 1223 Angell Hall.
Each concentrator must have one session with an English Department Counsellor, at the beginning of the
concentration. At that time, he will be notified of the departmental requirements, and he will sign a state-
mrent stating that he understands them. Every English concentrator should make an appointment with a coun-
sellor during pre-classification for Fall Term, 1973.
Thereafter, for all Election requests, for Drops and Adds during the normal Drop and Add period, the
student may have his program approved by a stamp obtained from the English Department office, 1603 Haven
6--9 UNIVERSITY of MICHIGAN CREDITS
Spend this summer in Paris in a program offered for the first time by the De
partment of English.
ENGLISH 498 (3 Credits) PARIS IN THE TWENTIES
Why was there such a concentration of great talent in Paris in
the twenties, and how did this city influence the writers who
made it their home? In the context of these questions, we will
consider selected works of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald,
John Dos Passos, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, E.E. Cummings, Hart
Crane, James Joyce and others. The student is expected to
familiarize himself with the locales which figure prominently
in the works of these writers, and to recreate the ambiance
which proved so receptive to them.
will examine modern translations from French, old French and
Provencal, beginning with the poets of the nineties (Arthur
Symons,, Ernest Dowson) and then considering the early modern
poets (Ezra Pound, William Butler Yeats, T.S. Eliot, Marianne
Moore) and concluding withcontemporary poets (Robert
Lowell, Richard Wilbur, W.S. Merwin, and W.D. Snodgrass).
Why has there been this passion in the. twentieth century to
"make it new"? What is the relationship between a translo-
tion and the original poem, and between a translation and the
translator's own poetry? These are a few of the questions we
will be trying to answer.
