Virginia Woolf : interviews and recollections ( Book )
7 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 611 libraries worldwide
A coherent view of so extraordinarily chameleon a temperament and talent as Virginia Woolf's is, of course, almost impossible. If Lily Briscoe in To the Lighthouse needs 'fifty pairs of eyes' to take in a woman as simple as Mrs. Ramsay, even more pairs seem desirable for focusing on Virginia Woolf. The difficulty of a balanced viewpoint for some of her memoirists, a demanding enough task at the best of times, was compounded by the enthusiasm with which she sometimes donned a mask and by conversation whose notorious brilliance veered at moments towards the flamboyant, the wildly inaccurate, or the cruel. To penetrate this mask, Virginia Woolf: Interviews and Recollections provides multifaceted perspectives on Woolf as observed and remembered by relatives, close friends, acquaintances, and fellow writers from Vanessa Bell, Arnold Bennett, and Edith Sitwell to Marguerite Yourcenar, Rose Macaulay, and Stephen Spender.

Notes on life and letters by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 268 libraries worldwide
The twenty-six essays collected in Notes on Life and Letters (first published 1921) offer a kaleidoscopic view of Joseph Conrad's literary views and interest in the events of his day, including the Titanic disaster, First World War, and the re-emergence of his native Poland as a nation state. The introduction gives the history of the gathering of these diverse pieces into a single volume, traces the book's reception, and offers new perspectives on its relationship to Conrad's other writings. His essays underwent multiple layers of unauthorized intervention by typists, compositors and editors: this history is set out in the essay on the text and in the apparatus. The notes explain literary and historical references, identify places mentioned, and gloss foreign terms. Two maps supplement the explanatory material. This edition, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's essays and reviews in a form more authoritative than any hitherto printed.
Editing Virginia Woolf : interpreting the modernist text ( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 238 libraries worldwide
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, biography. It describes a variety of editorial practices and deals with theories informing the critical editing of the prose of this singular 20th century woman writer. This collections of essays by distinguished scholar critics of Virginia Woof confronts a number of contemporary issues in critical editing: the use of pre-print materials, authorial revision, the collation of historical texts and it engages in a lively discussion of the present-day editorial apparatus, tackling questions on annotation and paratext. The volume should be useful reading for anyone seriously interested in the critical editing of Modernist writing or in the ways in which Woolf's canon has been and is being preserved for her present and future readers.
