Excerpt from The Acharnians of Aristophanes: Revised, With Preface and Full Explanatory Notes

This work has been undertaken, not so much from a paucity of editions of the most popular and bril liant play of Aristophanes, as in defence of the old text, which, as it seems to me, has in many places been altered, without sufficient reason, not only by the German, but by their too obsequious followers, the English editors. I am well aware that to recall generally rejected readings may seem to some not only presumption, but a retrogression in scholarship. What strikes me, however, so strongly, brought up as I have been in the old-fashioned school of verse writing, is not only the needlessness (though that is often very apparent), but the want of poetic feeling shown in many of the changes introduced. In saying this, I would not be understood as speaking of Aristophanes alone. Some changes, of course, are necessary, and many are such as commend themselves at once to every editor of judgment and taste. But others imply a caprice which seems to let nothing alone, and which has led the authors of them habitually to indulge in inge nious guesses, without possessing (as it seems to me) that correct sense of fitness and rhythmical harmony which are essential conditions of sober criticism.
