Lament for a Lit Wit

In my review of Tag Gallagher's biography of John Ford (Book Review, March 16), my quotation from John Milton's "L'Allegro" was misattributed to Ben Jonson, not by me, but by some Times editor who clearly needs to go back and reaudit English Lit I.



Of this editor it has been said, "We have seen him blot a thousand lines. Would that he had blotted none!"
