I love Christopher Ricks’ observation:

“The risk that a large-scale edition like ours cannot but run is its giving
the false impression that a reader, in order to find enjoyment and wisdom
within these poems, must need to know monstrously much. Answer: there is
very little that you *need* to know.”

Cheers,
CR
