British Academy

Professor Elizabeth M. Wilkinson was one of the greatest, and — across the whole spectrum of the humanities — one of the most highly regarded, scholars of German culture the United Kingdom has produced, in particular because of her illuminating work, both historical and theoretical, on German Classicism, which did much to bring home its living significance. All who knew her were impressed by the depth and breadth of mind that she brought to bear on her work. She is fondly remembered as a teacher of genius who combined in a uniquely charismatic way sheer intellectual excitement, tender (and patient) regard for the development of individual students, and a passionate — sometimes fierce — dedication to the resolution of first-order problems.
