Excerpt from Studies in American Literature, Vol. 4: A Program for Women's Clubs
The suggestions for study made in this program are in no sense to be construed as a syllabus of American literature. All of the books and selections cited for study are drawn from our literature of the last hundred years and make no pretense at being all-inclusive or even consecutive in their arrangement. It is, however, hoped that the student who consistently follows the reading here outlined will learn something of the life and writing of more than fifty of the outstanding figures in our history of letters. The one purpose that has been kept in mind has been that of affording both a pleasant and an instructive journey through "the realms of gold."
The last half of the program frankly emphasizes modern and contemporary literature. This is done not because of any deep-rooted assurance that our current writing is to prove permanent, but in the belief that literature draws its greatest inspiration from life as it passes and lives only insofar as it fairly represents the ideals, the struggles, and the aspirations of those who are with it in the making. It is at once our pleasure and our serious duty to help in the winnowing.
The outlines which are suggested for each paper are obviously scant. They are made so deliberately. Were the plans worked out in detail they would be either so complete as to do the work for the club woman or serve, in the difficulty of getting books, completely to confuse her. To the writer it has seemed better simply to suggest general schemes of development, leaving the person responsible for the paper to mould the materials she can get to hand in the best way possible.
It may be well, also, to call the attention to the fact that, while the programs are worked out on the "paper" basis, there is no reason why these plans may not be used by the club member working alone. In that case it would seem well, however, to keep some sort of formal notebook for conclusions reached and facts ascertained.
