Abstract of the Week!

From Textual Cultures: Texts, Contexts, Interpretation:

The Psychic Link

This essay explores the role of rupture in the editorial process. Drawing on Wordsworth and Freud, it proposes that the editor's labor, specifically the preoccupation with the restoration of textual connections, may reflect an unconscious desire to heal non-textual wounds. Part autobiography, part elegy, the essay reminds us that the labor of editing is contingent and transient.
