PREFACE

FOR years past—as a ways again as 1904—many people have been expecting the Shakespeare Tercentenary because the party for a few becoming memorial to represent the highbrow fraternity of mankind within the common homage accorded to the genius of the best Englishman. We had was hoping that, on a domain which has already been got, a stately construction, to be linked to his august identify, outfitted and appropriately endowed for the furtherance of Shakespearian drama and dramatic paintings ordinarily, might have made the 12 months 1916 memorable within the annals of the English stage.

At a noteworthy assembly held in July 1914 of delegates nominated via many associations, universities, societies, and different our bodies, to think about the query of the observance of the Shakespeare Tercentenary, Lord Bryce as President of the British Academy presiding, it was once unanimously resolved, at the movement of the yankee Ambassador, His Excellency W. H. web page, * That the Tercentenary of the dying of Shakespeare will be venerated in a fashion necessary of the veneration during which the reminiscence of Shakespeare is held by means of the English-speaking peoples and through the realm at large'. The delegates, representing the British Empire, the USA, and overseas international locations, have been constituted as a basic Committee, and an government Committee was once appointed, with Lord Plymouth as Chairman, and myself as Honorary Secretary.

Then got here the warfare ; and the dream of the world's brotherhood to be established by means of its universal and united commemoration of Shakespeare, with many one other fond phantasm, used to be rudely shattered. In face of sterner tasks all such tasks fell unavoidably into abeyance. a few months in the past, even if, it was once well-known (and the decision got here to us from many quarters at domestic and out of the country) that no longer even below current stipulations may still the Shakespeare Tercentenary be allowed to move unobserved, notwithstanding the scope of our unique programme may of

necessity be modified,—though lets now not wish to witness even the root of the proposed Shakespeare Theatre, nor to welcome, as we had expected, the numerous devotees of the poet who might have wanted to take part in our Commemoration.

We knew we should always have our buddies with us in spirit at the nice party ; and it appeared to me, in a single approach at the very least, attainable to hyperlink their homage with ours, and at hand all the way down to posterity a priceless list of the common reverence for Shakespeare as shared with the English-speaking international by way of our Allies and impartial States, specifically, by way of the publica tion, in honour of the Tercentenary, of a publication of Homage to Shakespeare, with contributions in prose and verse, representing the ubiquity of the poet's potent impression. hence, inspired by way of these whom I ventured to refer to, and therefore with the approval of the Ter centenary Committee, I took upon myself the in charge and arduous job, advanced by way of current stipulations ; and the prepared and beneficiant co-operation of 1 hundred and sixty-six Homagers reveals expression within the current quantity. Time and house necessitated yes boundaries ; and it has no longer been attainable to incorporate many that could were prepared to affix in our Homage, and whose tributes to the poet may were valued by way of all Shakespearians. the unique plan of the ebook fastened the utmost variety of individuals at 100. It quickly turned transparent that this is able to must be elevated, and that the British Empire by myself couldn't good be represented by means of below 100 members, with a few seventy extra representing the US, France, Italy, Greece, Spain and Spanish-speaking nations, Portugal, Rou-mania, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Russia, Serbia, Poland, ' Jugoslavia', Finland, Japan, China, Persia, Armenia—to stick with the association of the booklet, the place the international locations are grouped by means of languages, specifically, English, Romance, Dutch, Scandinavian, Slavonic, &c. those languages, although, don't exhaust the record, for from British matters we ..
