English Literary Lectures, Reading and Essays

  • S. P. Rosenbaum


The study of English literature at Cambridge had been advocated as early as 1867 by no less a figure than Henry Sidgwick, who suggested it might replace compulsory Greek. A chair of Anglo-Saxon had been created in 1878. But English was not established as a tripos subject until after the First World War. For those interested in the literature of their own country there were in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century at Cambridge a lecture series in the subject, various reading-societies devoted to English works, and prizes awarded by colleges and the University for English essays of one kind or another.
