UChicago Shakespeare Specialist David Bevington Remembered

"Professor Emeritus David Bevington, the extraordinarily prolific editor of Shakespeare's full canon and author of seminal books about English Renaissance playwrights, died peacefully at home in Chicago on Aug. 2. He was 88 years old," the University of Chicago said Monday.

"Remembered by friends and family as a vibrant, generous and intellectually inquisitive man, the longtime University of Chicago professor possessed an infectious enthusiasm for the works he taught. He lived life with boundless energy - teaching, writing, hosting social events and playing chamber music with friends until just before he died.

"As a scholar, Bevington helped build UChicago's Department of English Language and Literature into a national center for graduate study in the English Renaissance."

"When possible, Bevington opted to teach class in the large Edward M. Sills Seminar Room, which features a large, oval table accommodating several dozen, rather than in a more traditional classroom in which all the students might face a lectern. He felt this format fosters greater participation and discussion among students, and went out of his way to encourage the sharing of ideas and opinions. However, because so many students elected to take his popular classes, the room at times became overfull," according to his Wikipedia page.
