Sir Herbert Grierson
Sir H. J. C. Grierson, who contributes to the series ' Men and Matters ' this evening, was Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature in the University of Edinburgh from 1915 to 1935. His publications include ' The First Half of the Seventeenth Century'; 'The Poems of John Donne ', edited with introduction and commentary; ' Metaphysical Poets, Donne to Butler ' ; The Background of English Literature ' ; 'The Poems of John Milton ' ; and ' Lyrical Poetry from Blake to Hardy' ; and he has edited the monumental collection of Sir Walter Scott letters in twelve volumes.
Sir Herbert is one of the most distinguished of living scholars and his knowledge of Sir Walter Scott is probably unrivalled.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
