Subject: the critical edition as art Thanks to academia.edu, notice of the Prologue to a recent book, Vishwa Adluri and Joydeep Bagchee, Philology and Criticism: A Guide to Mahābhārata Textual Criticism, came to me this morning. Some here will, perhaps, be glad to know of it. Commenting on the painting chosen for the cover of the book, Czech artist František Kupka (1871–1957)'s Le Premier Pas or The First Step, the authors observe that, "The choice of abstract art to illustrate the concept of a critical edition may seem strange at first, yet it is also obvious when one considers that, like abstract art, stemmata are idealized representations of relationships that have no basis in matter."
