    I have two reactions. First, I’m not too concerned with under-tagging, as in the example of the Whitman “Captain” poem and whether to indicate that “Captain” refers to Lincoln. I would think that a thorough searcher looking for literary references to Lincoln should be searching terms that commonly stand in for a president, which would include words like captain, chief, commander, etc. Second, I think that we have to always be aware that the acts of selection of texts to edit, and tagging either form or content, are acts that alter both their interpretation and their prominence relative to other sources.
