On July 14, 1895, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, fifty-nine years old and deeply in debt, boarded a night train to Cleveland, launching a performance tour designed to alleviate his financial woes, and, more importantly, resuscitate his alter ego, Mark Twain. The journey took him to Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, India, and South Africa, and led to the resurrection of Twain as a celebrity. Equal parts travelogue, social history, and biography, Around the World with Mark Twain paints a decidedly different portrait of Clemens: a more tragic, darker figure who faced financial ruin and personal loss throughout his life. Around the World with Mark Twain delights while deepening our understanding of this magnificent personality.

Texts in multiple versions constitute the core problem of textual scholarship. For texts from antiquity and the medieval period, the many versions may be the result of manuscript transmission, requiring editors and readers to discriminate between levels of authority in variant readings produced along the chain of copying. For texts of all periods, and particularly for more modern authors, there may also be multiple authorial versions. These are of particular importance for genetic criticism, as they offer a window on the author's thinking through the developing work. The different contexts in which multiple versions may occur – different languages, different genres, different cultures, ranging in this collection from ancient Greek texts to novels by Cervantes and Aub, dramatic texts from Portugal and Germany, poetry from The Netherlands and Lithuania, scientific texts from the 19th century – provide further layers of complexity.The histories of countries are reflected in the histories of editing. In Europe, this can be seen particularly in the great period of 'nation-building' of the 19th century. Essays in this volume survey editorial activity in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany in the nineteenth century, concluding that nation building and scholarly editing are twinned. As a nation searches for its own identity, textual scholarship is pressed into service to find and edit the texts on which to establish that identity.The two strands of this volume (multiple versions of texts; editions and national histories) testify to the centrality of textual editing to many fields of research. There is material here for literary scholars, historians, and for readers interested in texts from Ancient Greece to modernist classics.

The book opens with J'nell informing the reader of the flaws of her hometown in Mississippi. From there she leads the read to New Orleans and her freshman year at Tulane University. The next two chapter's deal with her, and her lover, Gavin, discovering their parents are participants in the sexual revolution of the late 60's. At home for the 4th of July, her life is changed by the murder of a family friend. This murder helps her stand up to her father and choose the law as a career, rather than engineering. Another revelation is the discovery of George's gay relationship with the deceased. She learns her mother is pregnant, and there is a question as to which man is the baby's biological father. Her father, James, or Judge Gavin Davenport, II, who is her lover's father. Her parents and the Davenports have been involved in a swapping relationship since 1968, thus either man could be the father. Her own father assures her he is the only father the baby will have. J'nell realizes the whole sordid affair is turning into a nightmare. She is given the task of informing George of the death of his lover, Julius. It is on that fateful day, when she meets George Allen at the French Market Restaurant, she first sees Dolph Johnson, an older mysterious man, who will drift in and out of her life for the next seven years. When she and George Allen travel home for Julius' funeral, the two find themselves in a situation they could never, in a million years, imagine. It would take her mother's intervention to make her realize what an impossible situation it is. Fast forward to 1970 and the birth of her baby brother, James Joseph Montalvo, II, to be known as JoJo. The next stop is graduation from Tulane School of Law for her, Gavin and George Allen. At their graduation party she learns George will be leaving for an extended tour of Europe. The most devastating news is her lover, Gavin, will be moving to Washington, DC to become the clerk for the Chief Justice of the

As technologies for electronic texts develop into ever more sophisticated engines for capturing different kinds of information, radical changes are underway in the way we write, transmit and read texts. In this thought-provoking work, Peter Shillingsburg considers the potentials and pitfalls, the enhancements and distortions, the achievements and inadequacies of electronic editions of literary texts. In tracing historical changes in the processes of composition, revision, production, distribution and reception, Shillingsburg reveals what is involved in the task of transferring texts from print to electronic media. He explores the potentials, some yet untapped, for electronic representations of printed works in ways that will make the electronic representation both more accurate and more rich than was ever possible with printed forms. However, he also keeps in mind the possible loss of the book as a material object and the negative consequences of technology.
