In the preface to his collection of essays That Shakespeherian Rag (1986) the author reported that ‘an early impulse to call the book Eminent Shakespearians was quietly and efficiently throttled, and I am grateful to its assassins’. Terence Hawkes, who died at the age of 82 on 16 January 2014, could comment wittily on the genesis of a collection of innovative essays that brought together his own unique and distinctive approach to Shakespeare studies with a lifelong love of jazz and poetry. The title was from T.S. Eliot’s ‘The Waste Land’ and was an oblique reference to Hawkes’ own formative hobby as a highly proficient jazz drummer.
