The College is saddened to announce the death, at the age of ninety-two, of Dr Glen Cavaliero, poet, scholar and much-loved teacher, colleague and friend. Glen was a Fellow Commoner of the College and, until his recent illness, a regular at High Table lunch.  His critical writings include John Cowper Powys: Novelist, The Rural Tradition in the English Novel 1900-1939, A Reading of E.M. Forster, Charles Williams: Poet of Theology, The Supernatural and English Fiction, and The Alchemy of Laughter: Comedy in English Fiction.  His unique depth and range of reading are reflected in the titles of his books.

He published seven collections of poetry, culminating in The Flash of Weathercocks: New and Collected Poems, published in 2016.
