I have answers to both but do not know extra letters from wordplay.
14. Have to live with member of human race (4) Have is the def and begins with BE.
16. Humble home of football manager? (5) Humble is the def and answer is A???E.

For the endgame, I have the verse but no idea how to apply it to the grid. I see the brave man in the grid but don't know how to replace it. Cannot see others in the grid yet.
Since there are 16 extra letters, 4 words of 4 answer length are affected?

16.Abase?
Hi Hankir,
Like you I am stuck at the endgame. I think 2 of the words to be replaced have 7 letters and 2 have four. I have 17 letters from clues to go into grid so some of the existing letters in the 4 words in the grid must not be replaced.
The rest of the first verse of the relevant poem mentioned word, book, kiss and sword. My guess is that a synonym for each of these four words replaces the relevant four words in the grid. However not having much luck in doing this so I might be wrong.

Thank Gojira. You have given me something to think about.

dannyk, I have the answers. I am looking for extra letters from the word play.
For example, the answer to 14 is Bear. Live =be. What is a three letter word for member of the human race?
14 Ar - arm, member, drop the 'm'.?
The changes are symmetrically placed (the words on the right have all of their letters replaced - on the left, 5 letters remain the same).
hero could change to peck (for the kiss)?
Yes, saladdodger.

Thanks NAC. Still looking for extra letter in 16a.

Thanks ProfessorM. Still not sure what I am replacing and with what. Please give me hint on one word on the right that needs replacing.
The extra letter for 16a comes from (f.)A. BASE
Look at the one symmetrically opposite saladdodger's hero/PECK, hankir (a French word replaces it).
hankir ... you are looking to replace 4 words that mean "love" (broad sense.....
hero with its symmetrically opp one
and 2 x7 letter words top l and bottom r

Thanks ProfessorM and saladdodger.
I did find the replacement for 4 letter word on the right.
So kiss and look are taken care of.
Now for the other two.
I wondered if Gojira 's 'book' was a typo or a mistake...
You are right book was a mistake. I think it should be look.

Thank you all.
Got them all.

I was trying to change brave man with a sword and that threw me off.
Please help with the top left replacement..
Pomona, I found that one tricky too - but got it from having so few of the extra letters. Once I'd ticked off those I'd used, there wasn't a lkot left! And there's also a big hint -on this thread - about how many letters need changed.
i have replacement starting with F with letters 3 and 4 from the original changed ....but how is that a "word" (used up sword, look and kiss)
Thanks, Pomona. I took my entry for that as the 'flattering word'.
