Corrections.

November 3, 1997

Corrections. Lines in the notes on the life and works of Anne Bradstreet were accidentally cropped, an error now put right. The following typographical mistakes are now corrected: arnold1.html (line 59n, for "love" read "lose"); herbert4b.html (line 13, for "forgeited" read "forfeited"); keats18.html (the rhyme scheme should read "ababcdecde"), wordswor3.html (line 32, for "have" read "have no"; line 41, for "serere" read "serene").

New Poets (2) and Poems (30) for Version 2.02. Emily Dickinson (USA) and Edgar Allan Poe (8).

Notes on Poetry. The rest of the notes from the third edition of Representative Poetry--covering poems by 33 further poets (from Jonathan Swift to Algernon Charles Swinburne)--are now included at the bottom of the poem files. Notes now exist for over 70 poets in the collection. Clicking on a highlighted line number moves one from the text-line to the note on that line.

Reformatting. All poems by authors in the third edition have been reformatted at the time the notes were added. Bibliographical references are now placed in the poem file rather than in a separate bibliography file. Many small corrections were made to the encoding at this time, and several to the texts themselves. A number of poems--particularly excerpts--were renumbered so as to reflect the numeration in the complete texts.

Corrections. Faulty anchor tags preventing access to files are now corrected in author files for Richard Carew of Anthony, Sir William Davenant, John Dennis, A. E. Housman, and Henry King. Thanks to Ilse Hirvonen and Elliot Wheeler for alerting me to these problems.
