Nan Chauncy's Comfort me with applies : a diplomatic transcription

posted on 2023-05-26, 23:26 authored by Eastman, B
This thesis presents two parts: a transcription of Nan Chauncy's only unpublished adult novel Comfort me: With Apples and a short introduction to that text. The transcription is presented as a diplomatic edition of the typescript of the novel held in Nan Chauncy's papers in the Tasmanian State Archives. This edition is collated with a second typescript of the novel previously owned by the author's brother and which is now called the Reedwind text. The Reedwind text is now in the possession of the candidate. The transcribing of Comfort Me With Apples has been made in accordance with the principles of textual editing outlined by D.C. Greetham in Textual Scholarship: An Introduction (New York: Garland, 1994). This edition of the text has been produced for research purposes and is the only edition available outside the TSA. The Introduction consists in a description of text and provenance; a summary of the novel's parts; an analysis of genre and literary evaluation; a biography of author and chronology of works. Notes include a family tree and maps of relevant geographical locations.
