Default Robert Mezey Commemoration

Spherians who, like me, began visiting Eratosphere early in the 2000s, will remember the contributions of Robert Mezey, insightful and forthright as they often were, and marked by his deep and knowledgeable commitment to the craft of verse. As many of you will know, Bob died on 25 April last year. His family and friends, many of them students of his, have organized a “virtual” commemorative event for him via Zoom. This will take place during the afternoon of the anniversary of his death, on Sunday 25 April. Details can be found below.

Default Bob Mezey

Thank you so much for this, Clive. Mr. Mezey was a gentleman and a scholar, who always, always treated me with respect and professional equity -- when he had every right to condescend. May his spirit live forever.

Best,
Jennifer

Sorry to have missed this.
He was a good friend of Tim Murphy.

Indeed, he was. Until the hour of Tim's death (and I know -- I was with him till the end, and before then, with him constantly, so that he told me many stories), Tim extolled Mr. Mezey.
