This article discusses the reactions of Kenneth Dover, a classical scholar in Great Britain, to the suicide of a colleague. Dover felt relief after the suicide as there had been considerable friction between the two men. The author was intrigued by this story as he had also experienced a sense of pleasure, which he thought was inappropriate, after a colleague of his had completed suicide.
