Coleridge and textual instability : the multiple versions of the major poems by Jack Stillinger( )

15 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Textual pluralism holds that there can exist more than one authoritative version of a literary work, and that only by viewing the collective versions can the constitution of a work be seen. In Coleridge and Textual Instability, Jack Stillinger establishes and documents the existence of numerous different authoritative versions of Coleridge's best-known poems: sixteen or more of The Eolian Harp, for example, eighteen of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and comparable numbers for This Lime-Tree Bower, Frost at Midnight, Kubla Khan, Christabel, and Dejection: An Ode. Such multiplicity of versions raises interesting theoretical and practical questions about the make-up of the Coleridge canon, the ontological identity of any specific work in the canon, the editorial treatment of Coleridge's works, and the ways in which multiple versions complicate interpretation of the poems as a unified (or, as the case may be, disunified) body of work
The poems of John Keats by John Keats( Book )

42 editions published between 1978 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the first reliable edition of Keats's complete poems designed expressly for general readers and students. Jack Stillinger provides helpful explanatory notes to the poems which give dates of composition, identify quotations and allusions, gloss names and words not included in the ordinary desk dictionary, and refer the reader to the best critical interpretations of the poems. The new introduction provides central facts about Keats's life and career, describes the themes of his best work, and speculates on the causes of his greatness

The texts of Keats's poems by Jack Stillinger( Book )

14 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack Stillinger's concern is with the words of Keats's texts: "I wish," he says, "to get rid of the wrong ones and to suggest how to go about constructing texts with a greater proportion of the right ones." He finds that in the two best modern editions of Keats, one third of the texts have one or more wrong words. Modern editors have sometimes based their texts on inferior holograph, transcript, or printed versions; sometimes combined readings from separate versions; sometimes retained words added by copyists and early editors (who frequently made "improvements" when they thought the poems needed them); and sometimes, of course, introduced independent errors of their own. The heart of this book is a systematic account of the textual history of each of the 150 poems that can reasonably be assigned to Keats. In each history Stillinger dates the work, as closely as it can be dated; gives the details of first publication; specifies the existing variant readings and their sources; and suggests what might be the basis for a standard text

Reading The eve of St. Agnes : the multiples of complex literary transaction by Jack Stillinger( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Keats's "The Eve of St. Agnes" is one of the most admired works in standard English poetry. It has had hundreds of thousands of readers - therefore hundreds of thousands of individual responses - since its first publication in 1820. In Reading "The Eve of St. Agnes," Jack Stillinger examines the continuous inexhaustibility of this one poem, theorizing about the reading process, the nature and whereabouts of "meaning" in complex works, and the connection between multiple meanings and canonical status in literature."--Jacket
