Typescript - Overview

Typescript - Overview


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

The typescript of Virginia Woolf's 'Time Passes' forms the second layer of the Genetic Edition, and the next step of composition following the Initial Holograph Draft.

The version presented here is the typescript Woolf sent to Charles Mauron for him to translate into French, which is currently located in St Remy, France.

Though undated, it was apparently sent in late October or November 1926, and represented an intermediate stage of the text, between the initial manuscript and the marked-up proofs. Mauron's translation was subsequently published in the Paris periodical 'Commerce' for Winter 1926. It became the first of Woolf's writings to be translated into French, and thus formed a significant document in the history of her French reception, providing the basis for her high reputation in France.

We currently provide one default project transcription, compiled and encoded by Nick Hayward, and revised by Peter Shillingsburg. This transcription is available in a page and full view.

We also provide each page's image, both in gallery and zoom versions. Each single page image is available in the related content and quick view tab in the right sidebar for each page's transcription. It is also possible to view each page's original size image, either from the foot of the relevant transcription page or from the image's page within its respective image gallery.

In addition to a transcription of the typescript, and its accompanying images, we also provide a set of letters originally sent by Virginia Woolf to Charles Mauron in France. These can be viewed either from the right side bar or using the following link,
