A Social Edition of the Devonshire Manuscript

Description: 

The Devonshire MS is a poetic miscellany consisting of 114 original leaves, housing some 185 items of verse (complete poems, fragments, extracts, and annotative rebuttals). This social edition of the Devonshire MS works to bring scholars together in order to engage in conversation around the text, its contents, and its significance. Moving away from the lone scholar model, with edition of the Devonshire MS looks to use social media tools as a platform to transform the role of editor from solitary to collaborative. Using Wikibooks, the Devonshire MS presents genealogical tables, textual witnesses, and several critical apparatuses together to create an accessible and complete edition of the manuscript.
