Isabel Gortázar, R.I.P.

We are greatly saddened by the passing this week of International Marlowe-Shakespeare Society co-founder Isabel Gortázar, in Las Arenas-Getxo, Spain. Isabel was an extraordinary woman and a passionate and tireless Marlovian scholar. We will miss her immensely.

R.I.P., Isabel. I'll bet by now you've learned the truth and wish you could share it with us!

What a sad loss for the Marlovian movement. Isabel added intelligence, credibility, a historian's unlimited curiosity, kindness, rationality, tolerance, good humor, and a passionate appreciation of Marlowe's authorship to our cause. Her sage comments were always illuminating. What a rare human being! She will be sorely missed.

Sad to hear it. I was hoping to meet Ms Gortazar someday. I enjoyed her intelligence and sharp wit.
