Re: Hieronymo's at It Again

I'd love to, once everything calms down. Read D.A. Miller, that is. I met him at the reception after Julian Boyd's memorial service in May. He praised the short piece I read, which is saying something. His own address was amazing.

Somehow I missed Professor Boyd's death. Do you remember my sitting in, on your recommendation, his course in linguistics (or what the English dept. called, I believe, "language")? My favorite memory about him was the anecdote (tall tale?) you related to me, related to you by him, about how at Oxford his friend John Searle had been known as the noble savage.

Re: Rousseau-fiction

Of course I do! I realized soon that it wasn't quite what you were looking for. I loved the man. His passing made me very sad. Between being his undergrad, his grad student, his reader, his T.A., and his auditor, I think I attended eight of his courses over the years, if you can believe that.

Do you happen to remember any of what D.A. Miller said at Boyd's funeral? (I second the recommendation of Miller's Austin book, by the way. It's a terrific read, and full of invigorating analysis.)

Not the specific words, but the content. I could send you an e-mail. Write me: cbertsch before the "at" sign and comcast.net after it.
