SIR,—May I supplement Mr. Marcus Cunliffe's in- formation about the

teaching of American literature on this side of the Atlantic? Since 1953 American literature has formed an intergral part of the course for the BA Degree in modern literature in the Uni- versity of Dublin, and lectures by American special- ists are provided for our students.—Yours faithfully,
