New Pamphlet Lists 500 Books
For, College Men And Women
By ARTHUR A. MILLER.
If one has ever mulled about in a
library or book store, opened covers,
scanned titles and has finally slipped
out confused as to what to read, a
list of 500 books compiled by three
members of the English department
will probably serve him as a guide to
systematic and planned reading. 1
"Five Hundred Books For College
Men and Women" is a pamphlet re-
cently published by Prof. Clarence
D. Thorpe, Carlton F. Wells and Dr.
The idea of a list of necessary read-
ings is not new. This recent one is a
revision and an enlargement of a
group of selections published by the
English department in 1926, accord-
ing to Mr. Wells, but it is not often
that the following statement is ad-
Dos Possos, Dreiser Included
The authors write, ". . . . consid-
eration has been given to what is
representative and readable as well
as to what is traditionally import-
ant." And it appears that there has
been more than a perfunctory effort
to include titles of books whose merits
are still not completely agreed upon
and whose advent is recent.
Besides the usual library -fixtures
like Plutarch, Pepys, Carlyle, John
Stuart Mill, Tolstoi, Homer, Virgil,
Horace and Ovid, works which are
more likely to be read by the student
There is Willa Cather, for instance,
Jack London, Theodore Dreiser, Sin-
clair Lewis and Hemingway, Joyce,
Dos Passos and Anderson.
Students Comment On List
These are naturally listed under
the fiction headline but there is Lud-
wig Lewissohn included under "Bio-
graphy, William James under "Let-
ters and Diaries," T. E. Lawrence
under "Travel," Max Beerbohm in
the 'Essays' columns and Robert Frost
and Carl Sandburg under "Poetry."
In an interview, Mr. Wells bore out
the direction of the pamphlet's fore-
word when he said that since the list
was compiled for students, it would
be revealing if their views on the
work were presented.
The following is the opinion of a
senior in the sociology department.
"The compilers of this list have
been successful in attaining their
much-qualified end which is set
forth in the introduction. The sole
fatlt of the work lies in the tacit
assumption that college men or wom-
en of 1935 are being removed from
the seething cauldron of social forces,
and consequently are not interested in
reading of their own historical era.
Else what could have prevented them
from mentioning Zola's "Germinal,"
Upton Sinclair's "Boston," Henri
Barbusse's "Under Fire," John
Strachey's "Coming Struggle for
Power," Heywood Broun's "It Seems
to Me" and Lewis Mumford's "Tech-
nics and Civilization," while including
such socially insignificant as "An-
thony Adverse," "The Good Earth,"
and "The Bridge of San Luis Rey"?"
Another comment is from a pre-
$2.50 Top Price Of Books
"In my opinion the list of 500 books
for college students is woefully out of
balance. There is far too much fic-
tion and not enough of the sciences,
the arts, (especially music) and
philosophical works. The list in-
cludes "Robinson Crusoe" and
"Treasure Island," but nowhere is
mention made of the famous experi-
ments of Gregor Johann Mendel, or
of Voltaire's "Zadig." The list seems
to have omitted many of the signifi-
cant foreign works especially Zola's
"Verite" and "Lourdes," while
Feuchtwanger is not even men-
These responses are from students
of different interests. The authors
of the pamphlet, however, seem to
have anticipated this, for they warn,
" ... the compilers make no claim to
Other individuals included in the
modest survey issued criticisms which
were seldom similar, and it was the
usual to have selected additions more
or less related to their fields of in-
But for those of any calling there
is one attractive feature about the
compilation. No volume in the list
costs more than $2.50 and none less
than 50 cents. In this connection Mr.
Wells stated that the list will es-
pecially suit those who "spend less
than $25.00 a year for books."
