Errata in 2011 Go Down, Moses

The quotations and page numbers in our representation of Go Down, Moses use the most recent (2011) Vintage International paperback edition. That text is based on the "corrected text" of the novel that Noel Polk established for the 1994 Library of America volume of Faulkner's Novels 1942-1954, but unfortunately it contains a number of typographical errors. They appear below in the lefthand column, with the correct text listed to the right.
