ODNB entry for Whyte: 'Whyte conceded that only two thirds of the verse in this bulky tome was his own, the rest being in the main the work of his students. Since this leaves the reader in the predicament of not knowing precisely which are Whyte's poems and which are not, any assessment of Whyte's work as contained in this volume is rendered impossible.'
