In Memoriam - Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick
This is quite sad really - 58 years old seems awfully young, and she had far more books in her. Her essay on Proust is unparalleled, I think, and Epistemology of the Closet remains one of the most compelling books on Queer theory - convoking (rather than oppossing) Literature and Life.
Wierdly enough, I was wondering just the other week what she had been up to of late.
