There goes another one

Dartmouth's English Department is losing the great Peter Saccio to retirement. Like John Stevenson, he was prone to wearing fancy dress while walking around Hanover. As for his reputation as a lecturer, I have nothing to add except that it was well deserved -- though not always because of his own abilities as a performer. I remember one of his lectures on King Lear being punctuated by a very loud rumbling noise akin to a thunderclap (it turned out to be construction work).
