Samuel Roth and the Pirated Ulysses

The Modernist Versions Project is pleased to announce the availability of the first installment of Samuel Roth’s Two Worlds Monthly magazine in which was published James Joyce’s Ulysses. To our knowledge, this is the first time this important scholarly resource has been made freely accessible to the academic community.

Following the success of our “Year of Ulysses” initiative, during which we published the entire 1922 Shakespeare and Company edition of Ulysses, we will continue year two of our project by making available Roth’s edition of Ulysses as well as the two-volume 1932 Odyssey Press edition of Ulysses.

MVP White Paper on Collation Tools (2011)

In 2011, the Modernist Versions Project needed to know what tools were being developed and used for collation. This paper is a survey of notable collation tools available for testing in 2011. It builds upon Hans Walter Gabler’s white paper, “Remarks on Collation,” published online in 2008, and accounts for collation tool development since Gabler’s survey. This paper is not a history of collation tools in the humanities. It is a survey and review of tools that are still being used for collation and visualization of collated texts. We review eight tools that have been developed specifically for textual collation, one tool developed for displaying the Text Encoding Initiative’s parallel segmentation in a web browser, and two version control systems.
