The Nobel Prize Winners in Literature

Excerpt

These studies of Nobel Prize Winners in Literature have been the result of research for several years and lectures upon the subject in University Extension courses, before college clubs and other groups. The vast scope of the subject suggests temerity in one who attempts to treat it in such limited space. The writer realizes the inadequacy of the book and possible conflicting statements because of diverse authorities that have been consulted. After careful "siftings," it is offered as an incentive to further study, as a roadmap to many paths of literary research. Biographical data and brief criticism of the authors' works are followed by a bibliography which is suggestive rather than exhaustive.

The writer of these chapters has been, in large measure, the recorder of research by many individuals and educational institutions, with personal deductions from wide reading. Among many books that have been stimulating are Creative Spirits of the Nineteenth Century byGeorg Brandes, Studies from Ten Literatures byErnest Boyd, books upon the drama and translations by John Garrett Underhill, Ludwig Lewisohn . . .
