Science and English: A Rapprochement through Literature.
Fagan, Edward R.
English Journal, v54 n5 p357-363 May 1965
Three views of literature as a bond between science and English are presented. First, the view that the sciences are contributing to the restructuring of literary forms is illustrated by quotations from Nigel Dennis, Northrop Frye, Stephen Spender, Ken Kesey, and Claude Mauriac. Second, historical precedence for viewing literature as rapprochement between English and science is drawn from observations of Kenneth Rothwell, Aristotle, Marjorie Nicholson, David Cornelius, and Edwin St. Vincent. Finally, a general trend toward interdisciplinary scholarship in all fields is presently taking place. Key scientific concepts are frequently related to literary examples. (RL)
