Housman, The Application of Thought to Textual Criticism
Since we have been blogging and commenting a fair bit on conjectural emendations (most recently More on Conjectures); I thought it would be good to link to the interesting, entertaining and otherwise-adjectivally-stimulating essay by A.E. Housman on "The Application of Thought to Textual Criticism" (originally given in Cambridge on the morning of Thursday 4th August 1921). See the text here.
