Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. "A glorious work, twisted on itself in layers, Maximus...required the organic footnote; the groundedness that intellectual rigor would offer, to make it seem, at least, graspabjg by ordinary means....we now have that hand to lead us through the intricacies ofmis monumental work....Butterick can tell us where Olson got what and from whom and when and possibly even how.
