笔果还原听力原文:

And I want, to say that Wilson who died over thirty years ago began his career before modern lit(erature) was taught and analyzed in the universities. As he said, at one time, and I think of piece about Christian Goth, (I call him Gothism), my father and his generation at Princeton a year or two after Wilson called him. When Wilson was studying there, that, the latest daring writers to get into the curriculum were wits of the 90s, and maybe, Goth had his reputation as a Bohemian romantic because he had known Oscar Wilde in Paris, but there was no modern lit(erature). Wilson came then from a different world, and he became the focal point of a broad mainstream American culture, and for that modern literature, and wanted modern literature to be able to be read and appreciated by ordinary people. They were not modernists in an abstract sense, and certainly some of them like…(人名/文学流派) were too difficult for some of their writings to be read by ordinary people. But this was a world before the division between the ‘brows’, or between the lit or whatever, had established itself as part of our consciousness. Wilson was a major player in the successful effort of his generation to establish at the heart of American life and innovative literature that would equal the great cultures of Europe. And he knew that the great cultures of Europe were there. He was not a product of a narrow American studies, kind of training at all.
