Chapter Summary

It is not often one has a chance to right a textual wrong, to reverse?on appeal?a textual injustice, to correct a textual record fixed in print now for twenty-five years, but, thanks to the opportunity of making a contribution to the Companion, the author exactly do that, at least with respect to how chapters 3 through 6 of Book VI of the Lawes were edited and how they appear in the third volume of the Folger Edition. None of the editors of the Folger Edition believed then that the interpolations were not by Hooker, but the author (together with Almasy and Keble) believe that they do not belong in a text that honours the intentions of the author of the Lawes. Textual evidence, based on documentary evidence, is subject to a degree of certainty that interpretative reading(s) of a text are not. .
