The function of an editor . . . is to serve as a skilled objective outsider, a critical touchstone by recourse to which a writer is enabled to sense flaws in surface or structure, to grasp and solve the artistic or technical problems involved, and thus to realize completely his own owrk in his own way. –John Hall Wheelock, Editor to Author
