We are feeling our humble mortality this morning - at learning that a friend (whom we took for granted would always be there) ... is gone. For those of you who knew A. Charles Roger, there will be a tribute/memorial page in the coming issue of Art With Words (deadline is 1 June).

A. Charles Roger - In Memory
by Ted L Glines


Early on the morning of 19 May, while browsing postings on the Art With Words MSN site, I was stunned to find this: “Professor A. Charles Roger passed from this life on January 13th, 2007.  'He just slipped away during the night.'” The news had just been received by Maylynn Hughes in a card from a friend. At first, I saw the startling words without being able to comprehend their message. And then it sunk in and everything in me said “No!”


There are those of you who knew the “Prof,” his works, his warmth, and his veneration for the written word. We will share a feeling of great loss at his passing.


A brilliant writer and literary critic, A. Charles Roger's works, especially his critical essays, were studies in color and imagry, sight and sound, comedy and pathos, and his phrasings stretched your poetic mind to new bright levels. You might write a poem. The “Prof” would read it and then compose a critical essay (about your poem) which would be far more creative and entertaining than your original work. He very simply was a creative genius with written expression.


We who were fortunate to have known and appreciated the “Prof” will agree that A. Charles Roger was one of a kind, both as a writer and as a friend. Our world is a poorer place now that he is gone from us, but the Summerland of Heaven has gained a loving, creative, and deeply compassionate Professor.

Very loving tribute.

Didn't knew Professor Roger, although somehow the name sounds familiar, maybe a coincidence, but to be moved by his passing, shows that you don't only can write about feeling but that you will made it available to us others.
A fine tribute.
