I was in a small, ~10-15 student, French class with Martha and got a chance to know her pretty well. Her self-discipline, raw intellect, depth, and maturity were amazing. The themes she saw in the literature we read were so far ahead of me (and likely rest of the class) that I wondered if we were reading the same text. Talking to her at one of the earlier reunions, and again in the vide,o underscored her eloquence and "big" presence, when she spoke. I recall her reciting a poem at a reunion several years ago, thinking that I didn't understand her then and still don't. I think she processed at a level many steps beyond people like me. As an English professor, she found her passion and gave it everything she had. What a gift to her students, colleagues and friends. A great person and a giant loss.
