6.
I say "proportional representation" because the phrase indicates, I think, what Professor Havens must have meant to say rather than what he did say when, after listing the four purposes which he thinks the poem expresses rather than the one that it should have expressed, he declares: "To the first of these purposes, which dominates some 400 lines of the poem, and to the first part of the fourth, which controls 50 lines, the Preface gives approximately the same space." In Forman's edition the Preface occupies 66 lines. Obviously, Professor Haven's statement will not bear literal interpretation.
7.
Especially by Francis Thompson, in his well known essay entitled "Shelley."
8.

Professor Lowes borrows the phrase from Henry James. See The Road to Xanadu (New and Enlarged Edition), 480, n. 54. He quotes in the same note the saying of Francis Thompson which I have also used.
