Most widely held works by Don Cameron Allen
The harmonious vision; studies in Milton's poetry by Don Cameron Allen( Book )

38 editions published between 1954 and 1979 in English and held by 1,763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the central concerns that engaged John Milton's poetic imagination was the vision given to man when he had put his own inner music in harmony with that of God. In The Harmonious Vision Professor Allen uses this theme as a means of explicating Milton's poetry and of understanding his artistic intent. As the author leads the readers through Milton's "L'Allegro" and "Il Penseroso" "On the Morning of Christ's Nativity," "Lycidas," Samson Agonistes, Paradise Lost, and Paradise Regained, he shows the development both of Milton as a poet and of the idea of the harmonious vision in the poetry itself."--Book jacket

The legend of Noah; Renaissance rationalism in art, science, and letters by Don Cameron Allen( Book )

29 editions published between 1949 and 1997 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is devoted to tracing the effect of the literal and historical interpretation of the story of Noah on the literary and artistic treatments of the legend in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It begins with a sketch of the controversy about the value of reason in religion, passes to the quarrel about the relative values of the Hebrew, Greek and Vulgate texts of the Bible, and then centres on the attempts to prove the actuality of a universal Flood. There are chapters on the literal explanations of how the Flood could have occurred and how the Ark could have been built to accommodate all necessary creatures. The author also considers the various scientific explanations of these matters and of fossils, the diversity of animals, and the origin of diverse peoples, such as the American Indians. Finally, he traces the effects of these arguments on literature and art, and shows that as the attempts to prove the story did just the opposite, the imaginations of poets and artists were liberated to do with the tale what pleased or amused

11 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of the Ph. D., financed by the Danforth Foundation and conducted by the Modern Language Association's Advisory Committee for the Ph. D., is based on responses to 3,623 questionnaires sent to department chairmen, directors of graduate study, graduate teachers, and recent recipients of the Ph. D. in English and American literature. Two chapters discuss both the history of graduate departments of English before 1900 and the present problems, related mainly to the increasing shortage of fully trained English teachers. Six chapters based on the data collected describe the present situation--(1) the personnel of English departments, (2) the recruiting and admission of doctoral candidates, (3) the initial training of these candidates, (4) the doctoral dissertation, (5) the professional career and its problems, and (6) the purpose of doctoral training. In conclusion 44 recommendations are made. Appendixes include extensive tables of data and the four questionnaires used. (Bn)
