1 hour 3 minutes

Original Description

Fifth annual Nina Mae Kellogg awards lecture on language, May 6, 1969, 3:00 p.m.


Frank L. Huntley, a seventeenth century English literature scholar, was a professor of English Language and Literature at University of Michigan from 1945 to 1973. The lecture, which was part of the Nina Mae Kellogg awards program, was introduced by Dr. Thomas Burnam and Dr. E. Dean Anderson of Portland State University in lieu of Professor of English Marjorie Nelson.

Huntley's lecture traces the classical and Christian origins of the use of dichotomies and oppositions in symbolic language to produce meaning in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century English poetry, using examples from John Milton, John Donne, George Herbert, Thomas Browne, and others.

Transferred and preserved by Portland State University Library’s Special Collections with the generous support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Oregon State Library.
