A radical and innovative Shakespeare criticism emerged in Britain in the 1980s, thanks largely to the hugely influential Shakespeare scholar Terence Hawkes. His distinctive voice, his wit and his intellectual energy has and continues to resonate with scholars in the humanities, as both an encouragement and a challenge – a stimulus to thought that is the bequest of an original mind. This volume collects memoirs and tributes to Terry’s legacy from his collaborators, admirers and friends in Britain, Europe, and the United States, and explores the reaches of his influence in both Shakespeare studies and critical theory.
John Drakakis is emeritus Professor of English Studies at the University of Stirling, UK. He is Editor of Alternative Shakespeares, Shakespearean Tragedy, the Arden 3 edition of The Merchant of Venice, General Editor of Routledge's New Critical Idiom series, joint editor and contributor to Gothic Shakespeares, and general and contributing editor for the revision of Geoffrey Bullough’s Narrative and Dramatic Sources of Shakespeare.
