Banner headings updated throughout the Archive

I have updated the headings in the gray banner throughout the Archive. The purpose of these changes was to make the banner consistent across the site. At any page of the Archive, the banner now always shows the main section heading (e.g., Published Works, In Whitman's Hand, etc.) and, when appropriate, the main sub-heading (e.g., within Published Works, either Books or Periodicals).

Contributor's name supplied for London Sun review

On this index

and in the corresponding TEI file


I changed "Anonymous" to "Kent, William Charles Mark," as the author of the review, "Walt Whitman's Poems." The London Sun (17 April 1868): 31490.

Edward Dowden in his Walt Whitman and his English Critics claims that his friend Charles Kent [William Charles Mark Kent, 1823-1902] wrote this review, and that William Michael Rossetti confirmed this information.

Additional correction made to Temple Bar review notes

For this review: I inserted an asterisk symbol for the author's note, and renumbered the editorial notes to begin at 1 instead of 2. I checked my changes against the original (paper copy of the review in our files--green folder).
