Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0222 Marvin Rosenberg

I, too, have fond memories of Marvin Rosenberg.  He was my Dramatic
Criticism professor when I attended Berkeley (1959-63), and he was one
the people whose love for Shakespeare influenced me as a young actor.
When I was accepted at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 1962, it was
Marvin who joyously proclaimed his enthusiasm for my rendering of Henry
5 and Mercutio, he was also so supportive and as a teacher, he gave one
of his young students the best gift of all...a feeling of self-worth and
self-confidence.  I have kept in touch with him over the years, together
with his dear wife, Mary, and I am so sorry that he has left our
midst...but his inspiration and his legacy will always live in my
heart.  God Bless you, Marvin, and thank you for so many wonderful years
of sharing you love for Shakespeare with all of us.

Although I had heard Marvin lecture many times, I "met" him only
recently through the SHAKSPER List when he initiated a private email
discussion on "Antony and Cleopatra" and an article of mine (soon due
for publication).  I was extremely encouraged by his willingness to
share views and his openness to diverse opinion, which he planned to
note in his book in progress.  I looked forward to meeting his
face-to-face to thank him personally for his support and am extremely
saddened that this will not be.  Even on a brief acquaintance (I thought
his friends might like to know), he gladly taught and gladly learned,
leaving me with an indelible mark of his generous character.
