QuotationSome of the errata listed in the English Edition of Seven Types of Ambiguity are funny. To excuse one sentence in the Gline foreword, he has to say: "For From Mr. Robert Graves' analysis read from Miss Laura Riding's and Mr. Robert Graves' analysis. It is regretted that A Survey of Modernist Poetry is erroneously referred to as by Mr. Robert Graves. It is by Miss Laura Riding and Mr. Robert Graves." Then, after all this: Page 8 line 24 For <i>Miss Gertrude Stern</i> read <i>Miss Gertrude Stein</i>. Page 36 line 11 For <i>paths</i> read <i>pathos</i>.
