An Introduction to Bibliographical and Textual Studies
Modern Language Association of America, 1999 - Literary Criticism - 179 pages
Revised and expanded, the third edition outlines the study of texts' composition, revision, physical embodiments, process of transmission, and manner of reception; discusses why these matters are central to a historical understanding of literature; and shows how the insights, methods, and products of bibliographical and textual studies can be applied to other branches of scholarship. The volume also surveys established practices in the field and indicates areas of current debate and development. It concludes with an appendix on the generally accepted style for textual notation, a reference bibliography, a handy glossary, and an index.
