Proceedings of the British Academy 1995by British Academy Staff
A hallmark of scholarship in Great Britain, The Proceedings of the British Academy annually gathers together some of the finest lectures delivered in the previous year, sponsored by the Academy. Volume LXXI features such eminent public lectures as the Chatterton Lecture on Poetry, the Raleigh Lecture on History, the Shakespeare Lecture, and the Keynes Lecture in Economics, as well as equally prestigious papers in art, archaeology, and social anthropology. As always, the volume concludes with obituaries of renowned members of the Academy, written by fellow members; this year's obituaries include Christopher Ricks writing on William Empson, Douglas Gray on fellow medievalist Eric John Dobson, and Nicholas Kaldor on his Cambridge colleague, economist Piero Sraffa.
