Letter to the editor:
...would you recommend any particular resources for choosing the editions of these texts that are the 'standard' or most critically acclaimed editions?
Among the books in the Bibliography, Fadiman and Major's The New Lifetime Reading Plan, A Guide to Oriental Classics, Ward's A Lifetimes Reading, and Van Doren's The Joy of Reading comment on favored editions for each entry. Raphael and McLeish's The List of Books will sometimes critique editions. For criticisms of later editions, you might check the archives of book reviews, magazine book sections, and the following newspaper book sections:
Dallas News, Jerusalem Post, Independent, LA Times, The Age and NZ Herald
(Monday) Financial Times
(Tuesday) Washington Times
(Wednesday) Kirkus Reviews and Village Voice
(Friday) Haaretz
(Saturday) Guardian and Globe and Mail
(Sunday) Hindu Lit Rev, Telegraph, London Times, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Moscow Times, NY Times, SF Chronicle and Washington Post
