The Case of the Snuffed Footnote

Show Summary Details


This chapter recounts the search for the details to go into a footnote, depicting another scholarly activity as a personal account. Footnotes, even ones fancily dressed up in meticulous Modern Language Association style can lead one into cul-de-sacs and blind alleys. Two fellow Joyceans, Daniel Ferrer in Paris and Jed Deppman in San Antonio and then Oberlin, and the author of this book were putting together a book of eleven French essays by genetic critics, including one on Joyce and paragraphs. Besides translating the essays, they also needed to edit them, and that involved modifying some of the notes the authors provided and adding new ones.

Keywords: footnotes; Joycean; Daniel Ferrer; Daniel Ferrer; prepublication; reconstruction
