Draft Transcription

Draft Transcription - Overview


The Genetic Edition of the text is comprised of four distinct layers containing seven versions.

The first version is the Initial Holograph Draft, which was written by Virginia Woolf between 30th April and 25th May 1926.

The initial holograph draft, with an undated single-page outline plan for 'Time Passes', has been reproduced in transcription with the accompanying manuscript image.

We currently provide one default project transcription, compiled by Peter Shillingsburg and encoded by Nick Hayward. This transcription is presented here in its original page view, from page 149 to 187. To view any of these pages either use the menu in the right side bar or the pager at the foot of each transcription page. You'll also find related material and categories in the right sidebar, which are specific to the page currently being viewed.

To view a 'Printer Friendly' version of the 'Initial Holograph Draft' simply select the option at the foot of each transcription page.
