Professor Thomas purposes to deliver, on successive Monday evenings beginning April 2, a short course of free public lectures upon the plays of Henrik lbsen. It is not an exaggeration to say that lbsen now has the ear of the world to a degree which is true of no other living man of letters. When his last play appeared, Knglish, Germán and French translations were published almost simultaneously with the original, and Russian, Polish, Bohemian, Hungarian and Dutch translations very soon thereafter. "Since Victor Hugo's 'Les Miserables' was published simultaneously in nine languages," says H. H. Boyesen, "I doubt if any such tribute has been paid to a man of letters as is implied in this eagerness to read him on the part of the thinking minority of eleven nations." Professor Thomas will take up the plays one by one in their chronological order, analizing and discussi ng them and connecting them with the necessary biographical exposition. The first lecture willbegiven in room 24, Monday evening, April 2, and will begin promptly at 5 p. m. and occupy about fffty minutes.
