The Beckett Digital Manuscript Project

The Beckett Digital Manuscript Project (www.beckettarchive.org) is pleased to announce the publication of the genetic edition of L'Innommable / The Unnamable, edited by Dirk Van Hulle and Shane Weller; technical realization: Vincent Neyt.

This new module reunites all the relevant manuscripts held at three different holding libraries: the Harry Ransom Center (Austin, Texas), the University of Reading and Washington University, St Louis. The genetic edition offers:

  *   950 digital facsimiles and their transcriptions;
  *   all pre-publication versions of the text: the French manuscript, a partial manuscript in French, the manuscript of the English version and two English typescripts;
  *   facsimiles of 350 doodles with description;
  *   a search engine;
  *   digital collation tools to compare the different versions at sentence level.
