Subject:        Scholarly Editing

This is a request for feedback.  A film journal I occasionally write for
has asked me for an article about what I think are precipitously
declining standards in the editing of film books.  ('Editing', in this
case, covers everything from acceptance of manuscripts to proofreading.)
I have seen some startlingly illiterate and silly books in that field
recently from respectable university presses.  Do list members think
there is a comparable problem in Renaissance and Shakespeare studies? If
so, to what do you attribute the phenomenon?  Thanks in advance.

Arthur Lindley
