A few notes on sources[edit]

The printed copy that I have access to is the first edition, from 1901 - a little larger than a pamphlet. This lecture was also included in Bradley's Oxford Lectures on Poetry, which I hope to import to Wikisource from an online version. I have access to a printed copy of the Oxford Lectures as well. It was first published in 1909, with a second edition later that year. The copy I have access to is a 1926 reprint of the second edition. In the online source, and in the printed copies of Poetry for Poetry's Sake (both when it's printed alone and when it appears as a chapter in Oxford Lectures), Footnote 3 says, "Not that to Schiller, 'form' meant mere style and versification." I'm positive that "not" is a misprint for "note", and have used "note" in my addition of the text to Wikisource.

I've proofread it against the printed source, but that was just to check things like italics - things that the eye could pick up immediately, without going through the text word for word. I intend to do a much more thorough proofreading from the printed source, since it's a fairly short work. Cowardly Lion 12:53, 5 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
