Seventeenth Century Prose: Five Lectures

Excerpt

The first, third, and fifth lectures are the Ewing lectures delivered at the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1958 by invitation of the Committee on Public Lectures and the Department of English. With permission I have added the lectures on Burton and Browne given by invitation of the Department of English in 1953. To Professor and Mrs. Majl Ewing, the generous founders of the Ewing Lectures, to Professor James Phillips, Chairman of the Department of English, and to other friends in the University, I am grateful for many kindnesses and much delightful hospitality.

In the notes I acknowledge a few of my debts, add an occasional comment, and give references to some of the quotations. The spelling of all titles, and of all quotations except those which are set in reduced type, has been modernized.

F. P. W.
