English lDean To Lecture On "Jane
Austen" Today In Natural
Science Audltorluu
Ernest de Selincourt, (lean of the
faculty of arts, and professor of Eng-
lish language and literature at the
University of Birmingham, England,
will present the third of a series of
four University lectures at 4:15
o'clock today in Natural Science au-
ditorium, taking for his subject "Jane
Austen." Professor de Selincourt, a
noted scholar of English literature
and an author, is at the present time
conducting a seminar for advanced
students of literature here.
The place of Jane Atmten in the his-
tory of the English novel, and the l
relation of her writings to different
types of novels of the 18th century,
will be dealt with in particular by
Professor de Selincourt. Distinguish-
ing between the realistic and roman-,
tic novel, he will use Jane Austen's
"Northanger Abbey' to show most
clearly the style of the novelist.
More widely read for pleasure in
England than any of her contempor-
ary novelists, Jane Austen's works,'
because of their witty character, have,
had a long lived popularity, Profes-
hor de Selincourt stated. A contem-
porary of Sir Walter Scott, Jane Aus-
ten ,the dean believes, has the char-
acteristics of the 18th century writers
rather than those of the early 19th
century, during which time she wrote
her ,most famous works. Jane Aus-
ten brings the past to its perfection
instead of breaking new ground.
One more lecture will be given by
Professor de Selincourt, Monday,
April 4, when he will discuss "The
Genius of the Brontes." Following his
stay here, Professor de Selincourt
will visit the University of Chicago
and the University of Wisconsin for
the purpose of giving student lectures.
