Description/Abstract

'"Editorial problems" are usually assumed to be the problems caused by scribes to editors. But this article is equally concerned with "editorial problems" in another sense, the textual problems for which the editors themselves are responsible . . . Editors have more in common with scribes than they like to think, and can be led by the same factors into perpetuating or even creating errors rather than correcting them'. The point is illustrated from a group of five early-thirteenth-century Middle English prose works particularly subject to both kinds of 'editorial problem'.
