TITLE: Political, Religious, and Love Poems
ED. Frederick J. Furnivall    
PUBLISHED: Early English Text Society 15, 1866


En-face? No, except pp. 46-55, pp. 180-189, and pp.190-232, 
         which are running parallel texts.

Key and code the following pages:

  1. Title page                = p.[iii-iv]
     = IMAGES 00000005.tif-00000006.tif
  2. Main text              = p.xlvi-292      
     = IMAGES 00000048.tif-00000342.tif

  The text consists of two <DIV1>s, the first with the <HEAD> 
  "POLITICAL, RELIGIOUS, AND LOVE POEMS", the second with the <HEAD> 
  "SHORT RELIGIOUS POEMS." Within each <DIV1> occur numerous 
  unnumbered <DIV2>s (that is, each separate poem or prose piece 
  should be considered a <DIV2>). 
  In the case of running parallel texts (see pp.46-55, pp.180-189, 
  pp.190-232, p.243), each version should be considered a <DIV3>. 
    Follow Guidelines for divisions within individual poems 
    (numbered stanzas treated as <LG>s with number as attribute, 
    etc.; poems with titled parts (see pp.123-132) divided into <DIV3>s; 
    "Explicit..." at the end of a poem is treated as <TRAILER>.

  Folio references appear in brackets in the margins, in this form: 
    [leaf 134,back]       = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="134b">
    [leaf 135]            = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="135">
    and so on. They should be placed at the end of the 
    line opposite which they occur, as usual.
      MS. references (often including folio references and 
      other descriptive material) that are placed at the 
      beginning of the poem (usually in brackets or parentheses) 
      should be treated as editorial head-notes, not as 
  Editorial notes (in brackets) occur sometimes at the 
  beginning of the poem, sometimes at the end of the poem. 
  Those at the beginning of the poem (generally MS. references, 
  with minimal description) should be embedded at the end of 
  the <HEAD>. Those at the end of the poem should be embedded 
  at the end of the final line. 
  Footnotes identified by superscript arabic numerals should 
  be embedded as indicated, discarding superscripts, as usual.
  Footnotes identified by line numbers should be embedded 
  at the end of the appropriate line, as usual.
  p.15-42: Marginal notes indicating the speaker in 
  various sections ("Equus, etc.) should be ignored.
  p.143-173: In cases of footnotes numbered superscript 
  1-1, 2-2, etc., retain the superscript numbers in 
  both text and footnote and embed the note after 
  the second number in the text. E.g., on p.145, 
  embed the 1-1 with footnote after the superscript 1 
  of "graue;1" (line 58). Whenever the text and footnotes 
  contain (at the beginning of lines) an asterisk, dagger 
  ("&dagger;"), double dagger ("&Dagger;"), section sign 
  ("&sect;"), and/or double vertical bar ("&Verbar;"), 
  retain same in both locations.
Special Problems: braces

  A number of poems here contain braces ("{ }") grouping 
  parallel elements in a sentence. In each case, eliminate 
  the braces and recast the lines as a single sentence or 
  series of sentences, maintaining lines when possible. 
  In cases where line numbers become inaccurate as a 
  result of the recasting, they should be ignored.

  first three couplets of "Alas, that we ever Sinned!" 
  can be ignored.
