Nightwood : the original version and related drafts by Djuna Barnes( Book )
173 editions published between 1936 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 3,315 libraries worldwide
The version of Nightwood published in 1936 and revered ever since both as a classic modernist work and a groundbreaking lesbian novel differs in many respects from the book Djuna Barnes actually wrote. Unable to find a publisher for her earlier, more explicit versions, Barnes allowed her friend Emily Coleman and her editor T.S. Eliot to cut much material - ranging from a word to passages 3 pages long - to create a book "suitable" for publication. Barnes scholar Cheryl J. Plumb has studied all surviving versions of the work to re-create the novel Barnes originally intended. The Dalkey Archive edition not only restores to the main text the material Barnes reluctantly allowed to be cut - along with her preferred spelling and punctuation - but also reproduces in facsimile the 70 pages of discarded drafts that survive of earlier versions. The restored text and related drafts are accompanied by an introduction tracing the novel's composition and by a hundred pages of textual apparatus. Nightwood is the story of Robin Vote and those she destroys: her husband "Baron" Felix Volkbein and their child Guido, and the two women who love her, Nora Flood and Jenny Petherbridge. Commenting on them all is Doctor Matthew O'Connor, whose outlandish monologues elevate their romantic losses to the level of Elizabethan tragedy. Sixty years after its first publication Nightwood is firmly established as a twentieth-century classic, and this critical edition will allow readers and scholars to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of this unforgettable work

Barnesbook : four poems derived from sentences by Djuna Barnes by Jackson Mac Low( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
Long an admirer of the work of Djuna Barnes, noted poet Jackson Mac Low used five of her works as the source material to which he applied the method of "involving irregularly biased random digit triplets to lead ... to a chance-determined number of sentences in these works and to mix them." He then entered each group of mixed sentences into the DIASTEXT program and edited the output. The result is a wonderful nonintentional work that "whispers" Barnes's incredible words "something quick" into the ear. In this work the distinguished American poet - winner of the 1994 America Award for Poetry - continues to explore the dynamics and excitement of the American language and its meaning
