Minton Warren, a Harvard professor of the early 20th century, spent his life's work establishing the text of Terrence. In this piece he illuminates the process by which he and other editors navigate the very difficult task of assigning lines to speakers in a format where poetic units are often broken mid-line between two speakers. A useful piece for not only scholars of Terrence, but for anyone interested in the recension and editing of texts from manuscripts.
