Volume 5, Issue 1 (1963)
On June 21, Leo Kirschbaum, a member of Wayne State University's English staff since 1946, died in Jerusalem, where he had been teaching on a Fulbright Grant at Hebrew University. Professor Kirschbaum was internationally known as a Shakespeare scholar whose many publications include books on the text of King Lear, on Shakespeare and the stationers, and editions of Spenser's poetry and of Marlowe's plays. His untimely death is a loss to Elizabethan scholarship. His associates at Wayne. State and the students who crowded his classes will also miss the challenge of a provocative intellect and a spirit intolerant of pedantry.
In recognition of all that he gave, this issue of Criticism is dedicated to his memory.
