This is the first book-length presentation of the life and works of James Orchard Halliwell-Phillipps, the eminent Shakespearean scholar. Halliwell was a man of prodigious energy and wide interests. His six hundred or so publications deal, not only with Shakespeare and early modern literature, but also cover mathematics, lexicography, the history of science, archaeology, and many other important subjects of his day. This well-researched biography reveals Halliwell's colorful and often controversial life as a man of letters within a strict Victorian society. This work also affords a panoramic, as well as a personal view of Victorian literary theory and practice. Co-publisher with Shepheard-Walwyn, Ltd.
