Incidental references: 1) K-D’s edition of the B text is an example of “deep editing,” in which each variant is edited separately “according to a demonstrable difference between the usus auctoris and the usus scribendi,” with the danger that mistrust of texts is elevated to a doctrine as intransigent as recension or best-text theory; and 2) if K-D rationalize their emendations for the B version by appealing to the readings of Kane’s A, is PPl again to be considered one poem (after 500 years in which no one noticed it was three poems)?
