Theories of the Text is the first comprehensive account of the changing practice of bibliography, textual criticism, and scholarly editing in the light of the diverse currents of contemporary critical theory. It offers both a much-needed introduction to the history of textual debate and a timely account of the current hotly contested debates over such issues as authorial intention, textual organicism, the socialization of the text, and intertextuality. Despite the positivist tradition of textual scholarship, D. C. Greetham argues, such work is a hermeneutic activity taking place within certain (usually unacknowledged) social and cultural conceptual constraints.

About the Author:

David Greetham is Professor of English and Medieval Studies at the City University of New York, and Founder and Executive Director of the Society for Textual Scholarship.

Review:

`Greetham thinks and writes clearly and makes a tremendous amount of difficult material accessible to anyone who wants to dig in, whether linearly from the beginning or piecemeal by means of the chapter and section headings and the indexes.' Jack Stillinger, Modern Philology

`Greetham hits his readers in their collective faces with one philological (among his favourite words) knockout punch after another ... a treat of enormous proportion is in store ... The plain truth is Greetham amazes. His grasp is astonishing. His range is debilitating.' Rodger L.Tarr, 2001

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1999. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Theories of the Text is the first comprehensive account of the changing practice of bibliography, textual criticism, and scholarly editing in the light of the diverse currents of contemporary critical theory. D.C. Greetham s ground-breaking book examines the conventions of textual study from the perspectives of formalism, modernism and post-modernism, intentionality, phenomenology, reception theory, structuralism and post-structuralism, gender studies, and cultural criticism. It offers both a much-needed introduction to the history of scholarly debate over text and a timely account of the current hotly contested debates over such issues as authorial intention, textual organicism, the socialization of the text, and intertextuality. While analysing the positivist, technical claims of earlier paradigms for textual study, the book is driven by the conviction that the critical component of the term textual criticism is a serious one, and that all textual editions and bibliographical work (even the most apparently objective and empirical) is a hermeneutic activity taking place within certain (usually unacknowledged) social and cultural conceptual constraints. It thus situates textual work within the broad territory of contemporary theory, and presents and series of reading of the most significant editions and the writings of textual critics, placing textual speculation and practice firmly within the ambit of the current critical wars. A major intervention in the debate over textual criticism, Theories of the Text will be invaluable reading both for textual scholars and editors requiring an account of the theoretical alternatives that migh guide their practical decisions and for literary theorists unfamiliar with the implications of present textual debate for such common critical concepts as text , work , author , reader , interpretation , culture , and gender .
