Copyediting Shakespeare

For an anthology I’ve been working on the publisher chose to copyedit some classic texts. It made me wonder how they would handle Shakespeare.

Getting Henry

I’ve finally posted my introduction to the Mercury House edition of Henry Handel Richardson’s The Getting of Wisdom. I might have done this sooner but the original file had been lost. Rereading this thirteen years (!) later, I think it’s a pretty solid piece of work. Let me know what you think (or if you notice any typos!). Does it still hold up?

Comments on “Gutenberg and the Koreans”

I’ve posted, in beta, my new essay on Asian influences on European printing. This essay is intended for print, but I’d like to get some feedback from knowledgable folks first (or even afterwards, for that matter). So this is the space for that. This was a pretty big project, so I hope someone might want to comment.
