'This volume in memory of Laurence Hergenhan is a collective demonstration of affection and gratitude for the kind and wise man he was and for all the wonderful things he accomplished in Literary Studies. He taught generations of students how to study in depth, sharing the finesse of literature and showing us how friendship, warmth and creativity are gifts to be cherished at all times and across countries. To honour the bountiful generosity of his life and work, the first section of this volume collects critical essays by prominent scholars, colleagues and friends who had an enriching and long-standing relationship with him. The second part of this volume gathers personal appreciations, stories and memories.'
