How to Read This Text

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 This site is powered by CommentPress, which allows comments to be attached to individual paragraphs, to whole pages, or to an entire document. To leave a comment on a paragraph, click the speech bubble to its left; to leave a comment on an entire page, click the link to “comments on the whole page” at right. To leave general comments on the entire text, click the single comment bubble icon in the navigation bar. Commenters must register, and agree to the posted stipulations.  We reserve the right to deny registration to anyone who spams the site, or who we have any reason to believe is a spammer.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 You can navigate the text using the bar across the top of the page; arrow buttons will take you forward and backward section by section, the closed book button will return you to the title page, and the open book button at the right will toggle the right-hand column between the comments and the Table of Contents. The arrows at far right will collapse or expand the text’s header.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 The relative widths of the main text column and the comments column can be changed by dragging the right edge of the main column. Footnotes are readable by rolling over a footnote marker like this one [1]; they’re also included as commentable text in the notes pages at the text’s end.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 CommentPress also presents two innovative ways of reading comments on the text. By clicking on the double comment bubble icon in the navigation bar, you can access all comments by page; in the list of pages, ordered by number of contents, clicking on the page title will cause the comments to expand, and clicking on “Comment” in each comment’s header will allow you to see that comment in its context. By clicking on the people icon in the navigation bar, you can read comments-by-author, with the same functionality as for comments-by-page.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Text in blue indicates material that is omitted by Helen Zimmern in her 1890 translation of The Hamburg Dramaturgy, reprinted by Dover in 1962.

  • [1]This is what the pop-up footnotes look like. If you find a note that runs off the top or the bottom of the page, scroll the main window a bit and you should be able to make the entire thing appear.
