This book contains the papers read at a conference organized by the Belgian research group Genese. Janet Todd summed up the difficult situation of the modern editorial critic: "Editing is the dullard's end of scholarship, refused the allure of gender, race and class and denied the glamour of poststructuralist or new historicist criticism that soars beyond the comma and absent colon." The papers collected in this volume prove that the practice and theory of editing are at least as exciting as these more fashionable critical approaches.
