Jillian M. Hess

Oxford Textual Perspectives

  • Studies the commonplace books, albums, and scrapbooks of Romantic and Victorian writers such as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Sir Walter Scott, George Eliot, and Alfred Lord Tennyson
  • Introduces unstudied, and understudied, materials and includes images of manuscripts that have never been published
  • Offers a timely investigation into the relationship between technology, knowledge production, information management, and literary forms
  • Places canonical authors' notebooks within the commonplace-book tradition
