I wonder where you found your suggested capitalization.

There are quite a few variations found on the Web.

I copied this sentence two years ago from "The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe" vol. 14. (New York: AMS Press, 1965). "The Rhythmical Creation of Beauty" was in italics.

I know you wouldn't use capitalization like this now. What should we do?
