Subject: RE: If you don't like ballads......
Sorry, above post was from me. To continue, Child had died by then (1900 publication date), so it does seem as if the entry was probably written towards the end of his life rather than an early view which he later changed.

I mention this not to question whether he was right or wrong, but as part of a discussion about what he thought, which may well have changed or indeed been a bit vague.

Happy to be corrected :)
