Excuse me? Jay Green is a wonderful guy---I'm appreciative of much of what
he's done, but please, among the world's top translator's and textual
critics??? That's like saying I'm among the top bicyclists in all the
world---I could survive about 1/4 of the Tour de France stages if I could
take them about one a week or so, but that doesn't quite cut it.

What is here called "undiluted, uncorrupted, non-interpretive form" could be
described by someone else as "wooden, obtuse, unintelligible form."
