John Fletcher's "The Pilgrim" I.i.122: A Proposed Emendation
MetadataShow full item record
The most recent edition of "The Pilgrim" (1621) is the one by Cyrus Hoy, in "The Dramatic Works in the Beaumont and Fletcher Canon", vol. vi (gen. ed. Fredson Bowers; Cambridge University Press, 1985). The edition is an 'old-spelling' text accompanied by a textual introduction and a meticulous section consisting of `Textual Notes', `Press-Variants in FI (1647)', `Emendation of Accidentals', and `Historical Collation'. Daalder discusses how there is one place where a further emendation is needed which, both in his own observation and from the evidence of Professor Hoy's notes, does not appear to have occurred to editors so far.
