This volume covers a wide range of editorial confrontations with Virginia Woolf's writings, touching on almost every genre in which she wrote: fiction, diary, letter, and biography. It describes a variety of editorial practices and deals with current theories informing the critical editing of the prose of this singular 20th-century writer. Essays by distinguished scholar-critics of Virginia Woolf confront a number of contemporary issues in critical editing: the use of pre-print materials, authorial revisions, and the collation of historical texts. They engage in a lively discussion of the present-day editorial apparatus, tackling questions of annotation and paratext.
