This article serves as a preface to the Double-Issue Festschrift which the Bulletin of Spanish Studies has published in memory of James Whiston. Mackenzie assesses Whiston’s lengthy tenure as a General Editor of the journal (2002–2014), recording what he contributed to its editorial management, to its development in content and coverage, and to its worldwide reputation in the field of Hispanic Studies and Researches. In addition, she provides concise commentaries on the more than twenty original articles written for the Festschrift by established scholars in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Europe, Canada and the United States. Apart from the three contributions which make up the Introduction, the articles are to be found, depending on their subject-matter, either in Part I. Pérez Galdós, History, Society and the Novel in Nineteenth-Century Spain and Beyond; or in Part II. Antonio Machado, Poetry, Memory and the Civil War in Spain. Written only a few months before he died, James Whiston’s last article, which Mackenzie also discusses briefly, concerns three Republican poems of the Spanish Civil War and functions, appropriately, as the Epilogue to ‘The Lyf So Short, the Craft So Long to Lerne’: Studies in Modern Hispanic Literature, History and Culture in Memory of James Whiston.
