Northrop Frye: The Bible and English Literature

Northrop Frye (1912-1991) was a graduate of Victoria College in the University of Toronto, who later became an influential professor, principal, and Chancellor. Frye lectured at over one hundred universities in his career. Between 1980 and 1981 Prof. Northrop Frye held 25 lectures under the title ‘The Bible and Literature’. Each of these lectures was recorded and for each of them a transcript was provided. Later excerpts of these 25 lectures (each 50 minutes long) were made into 30 programs (each about 30 minutes). That means in some cases 1 lecture supplied material for 2 programs or the other way around. To view the Northrop Frye Programs click here.
