Diane McColley was also brilliantly insightful -- and passionately appreciative -- on the subject of Early Modern literature's relationship with music. I will always be grateful for her generous encouragement when I first ventured into that field, even (or especially) when we disagreed. A splendid person; a great loss. Ave atque vale.

Diane McColley's vision of ecology and Paradise Lost helped pioneer a critical language that integrate John Muir, Wendell Berry, and the naturalists with John Milton's descriptive language. What a privilege to sit at the table for dinner at Murfreesboro, then on a faculty grant wander gardens at Monticello and England with notebook and the blind bard's epic. Kemmer Anderson,

Dear colleagues,

Diane McColley has passed away.

She saved my life. Without her work, friendship, and encouragement I would not be here. I am far from alone in that respect, I know.

My sincere condolences to all her loved ones. I loved her too.

Nothing more I can say at this point.
