 Irina Stepanovna Prikhod’koWe are deeply grieved to inform that Professor Irina Stepanovna Prikhod’ko passed away on March 24, 2014, at the age of 70.

She has been the inspiration for us, Russian scholars of Shakespeare and his times, the soul of our not-too-large team, ever encouraging and supporting all the plans and projects we did together. An exquisite scholar and a gentle mind, a kind friend and an ever-helpful mentor, a living tradition which connected our generation with that of the great Russian names in the humanities, she will always remain in our hearts.

Her contribution to the studies of the “Russian Shakespeare”, comparative research of English and Russian literary cultures (Shakespeare’s sonnets, the works of Alexander Blok) will continue to inspire scholars of our and future generations.
