   Before D. J. Marotta's questions got side-tracked into a discussion
of whether dilettantes had cornered the market on inanities, and before
the list got off on other discussions (i.e., before I got around to
reading my mail) he asked whether there was anyone on the list who
approached texts apart from the question of authorial intent.  The short
answer is yes, I do.

   If that strikes you as counter-intuitive, let me ask you: what
do I intend by it?
