'Englishness' are thus, I suspect, at the heart of Tillyard's anxieties.
As I recall pointing out on SHAKSPER over a year ago, they lurk, in
company with Adolf Hitler, importunate and formative shades, beneath the
pages of his book.
As regards Terence's comment above I believe he may have perhaps made a
rhetorical gesture too far.
But so it is with the revision of history - every generation breeds a
hero on the pop charts.
Enough of all that jazz Sirrah Hawkes?
