not yet rated|write a review
In Framing Pieces, Whittier-Ferguson recovers and explores drafts, notes, glosses, essays, and guides that high modernists, such as James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot, and Ezra Pound generated in order to interpret their own work. These archival materials reveal a complex picture of howtexts like Finnegan's Wake, A Room of One's Own, Three Guineas, and ABC's of Reading were annotated and framed by their authors, and how the authors illuminated and obscured various aspects of the annotations. Whittier-Ferguson also examines the first editions and periodicals in which these worksappeared to show how modernist writers gauged the extent of their audience and tried to control their readers' encounters with their writing.

"...Framing Pieces is a fine book which students of modernism in general--and of Joyce, Pound, and Woolf in particular--will enjoy, learn from, and find a valuable corrective to much recent work....Framing Pieces is a book well worth our attention."--Modern Philology
