Nevill Coghill (editor 1937)
Translator of Chaucer and sympathetic tutor (for instance of W. H.

Coghill was much admired by students for his direction of their plays and operas: by means of a wooden bridge hidden just underwater, in his "Tempest" Ariel ran fleetingly across the surface of Worcester College lake. Late in life he directed Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, both on stage and film.
