This study sets out to investigate the theoretical and especially the interpretative bases of eighteenth-century literary editing. Extended chapters on Shakespearean and Miltonic commentary and editing demonstrate that the work of pioneering editors and commentators, such as Patrick Hume, Lewis Theobald, Zachary Pearce, and Edward Capell, was based on developed, sophisticated, and often clearly articulated theories and methods of textual understanding and explanation. Marcus Walsh relates these interpretative theories and methods to seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Anglican biblical hermeneutics, and to a number of debates in modern editorial theory.

Book Description:

What did eighteenth-century literary scholars think they were doing when they set about producing the first modern editions of canonical English literary writings? In this study of Milton and Shakespeare in the eighteenth century Marcus Walsh demonstrates that the work of pioneering editors and commentators was based on developed, sophisticated, and often clearly articulated theories and methods. He relates these methods to seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Anglican interpretations of the Bible, and illuminates key issues in modern editorial theory.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The first developments in the editing of English literary texts in the eighteenth century were remarkable and important, and they have recently begun to attract considerable interest, particularly in relation to conditions and constructions of scholarship in the period.
