The Comic Element in the Novels of Thomas Wolfe

The Comic Element in the Novels of Thomas Wolfe

Date: 1957
Creator: Hanig, David Daniel
Description: As to form, Wolfe's novels are deliberately loose, because that is important to his purpose. Conceiving America as an open society of potentiality, he could do no less than remain open himself. To do otherwise would have meant impotence if not sterility.

The Contribution of Scholarship Toward an Understanding and Appreciation of Chaucer

The Contribution of Scholarship Toward an Understanding and Appreciation of Chaucer

Date: June 1954
Creator: Cundiff, Virginia Riggs
Description: In the more than five hundred years since the death of Geoffrey Chaucer, scholars have labored steadfastly to bring to light early criticisms of the poet's works, comments on his life and the customs of his time, and any recorded facts that would contribute in any way toward a better understanding and appreciation of the Canterbury Tales, the poet's life, and the practices of his age. It is the purpose of this study to show this contribution of scholarship; and the writer has relied heavily upon the publications made by T. R. Lounsbury, Caroline Spurgeon, and F. N. Robinson, each of whom has brought together the results of scholarship up to his own time and without whose works this writer's task would have been impossible.
