Berger's articles in the field of English Renaissance literature have always had substantial influence among specialists, but the reappearance of these essays, often revised or amplified, in collections from university presses offers an occasion to reassess Berger's place in the volatile history of critical theory and practice in the second half of the twentieth century. The restless energy driving this enterprise has been so prolific that Berger's career keeps outstripping the reassessments. Acknowledging the subject's vigorous resistance to valediction, the editors nonetheless hope to play catch-up with the twenty essays collected in this volume, written not just “in honor of” Harry Berger but about him, as teacher and as critic.
