There is nothing flashy about Tom Emerson. A person from a distance who sees him talking to students or friends, might think, "A typical, rather traditional, perhaps a bit old-fashioned professor." Similarly, the first impression of someone visiting one of his classes or looking at a syllabus for one of his courses might be, "A teacher who is very concerned with covering the material." They would only have these impressions, however, until they looked at the faces of those to whom Tom was speaking, whom Tom was teaching. For then they would see an excitement, a commitment, a loyalty, and a love that would be more powerful in its depth and intensity than any that the greatest spellbinder could evoke.
