Helen Pinkerton’s poem “Coronach for Christopher Drummond,” published in The New Compass 1 (2003), is featured today in Patrick Kurp’s blog Anecdotal Evidence.

Christopher Drummond meant a great deal to me as a friend and mentor, and my co-editor, Michael DiSanto, and I were very pleased to dedicate the first issue of our on-line journal to him. The issue includes a “Letter from Cambridge” by Gordon Harvey, who talks about the experience of being one of Drummond’s students, along with essays by John Baxter on Drummond’s conversational model of teaching, Ian Robinson on Drummond’s 1971 lectures on Milton, and C.Q. Drummond himself on George Whalley on mimesis and tragedy.
