Scholarly Editing and German Literature: Revision, Revaluation, Edition
Edited by Lydia Jones, Bodo Plachta, Gaby Pailer, and Catherine Karen Roy
Scholarly Editing and German Literature: Revision, Revaluation, Edition offers international perspectives on the process, products and impacts of a commonly overlooked aspect of literary scholarship – scholarly editing contributions range from medieval to contemporary, correspondence to poetry, their forms from reports on works in progress to theoretical considerations.
Bodo Plachta's observation that schools of scholarly editing in North America and Europe share a common origin and a basic set of common premises opens the volume and serves as an introduction to the five thematic groups: Material and Extralinguistic Elements and the Construction of Meaning, The Process of Editing and Editing Process, Edition and Commentary, Editing and Similar Second-Order Processes and Textual Creation, Edition and Canon(ization).
