Poetic Obituaries: Timothy McFarland, who has died aged 76,

was an expert on medieval German literature. He had a particular love for the epic poetry of Wolfram von Eschenbach, the author of Parzival, which he taught with passion to generations of students. He co-edited a collection of essays devoted to Eschenbach's less well-known Willehalm.
