Collection Description & Creator Information
This collection consists of the English literature course materials of A. Walton Litz. Included are his lecture notes on topics in modern literature, modern American poetry, modern British poetry, and the history of literary criticism, as well as syllabi, reading lists, handouts, and other reference material. There are also four preliminary chapters for the Cambridge History of Literary Criticism, Volume 7 (2000), edited by Litz, Louis Menand, and Lawrence Rainey. The files (in 4 record center cartons and 1 archive box, totaling 4.4 linear feet) are arranged in the same order as originally found in Litz's filing cabinets in his Firestone Library office. Professor Thomas Roche of the Princeton University English Department provided additional information on the English undergraduate and graduate classes and seminars taught by Litz during his years at Princeton.
