James Winn, Biographer Of Queen Anne And Dryden, And A Master Of The Flute, Has Died At 71

Winn didn’t like the way that the academic world tended to get itself twisted into silos, he said, which is why he wrote about cultural life during Queen Anne’s reign, the poetry of war, Bach and the Beatles. “Professor Winn himself was certainly not a silo-dweller; when he wasn’t teaching English or writing about the Restoration, he was performing with orchestras or small ensembles, or working on a recording.” – The New York Times
