Sad to hear about the death of Robert Hellenga. When The Sixteen Pleasures came out in 1994, it was a sensation.

Sorry to hear of Prof. Robert Hellenga’s passing. I took a course from him in literary criticism. It’s aided me all these years in my approach to writing.

As with so many @KnoxCollege1837 professors, Bob was very accessible to anyone who wanted to talk.

A professor I deeply admired in college just passed away. He was an author, an educator, and above all, fiercely inspiring. Rest in peace,
