Barry Menikoff:
Robert Louis Stevenson and "The Beach of Falesa": A Study in Victorian Publishing with the Original Text - hardcover

1984, ISBN: 0852245009

[SR: 2989695], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780852245002], Edinburgh University Press, Edinburgh University Press, Book, [PU: Edinburgh University Press], 1984-11-01, Edinburgh University Press, The Beach of Falesa is one of Stevenson's finest achievements, and ranks among the masterpieces of English novellas. Henry James called it "an art brought to perfection", and Stevenson himself said it was "nearer to what I mean than anything I have ever done". Yet the book ran counter to various deeply held political, sexual, and religious convictions of its late Victorian publishers and editors. Set in the Western Pacific, using the pidgin and rough slang of the region, and told by a white trader who sleeps with and later marries a native girl, Falesa never appeared in print as Stevenson wrote it. Language was revised, distorted, or deleted, entire passages were garbled or bowlderized, and punctuation was systematically changed to "refine" or "correct" Stevenson's style. Here, we have Stevenson's work as he wrote it, faithfully transcribed from the original manuscript. A detailed analysis preceding the text shows what happens when a work of art is converted into a commodity to satisfy the tastes and prejudices of the period. The analysis traces in detail how Falesa was sytsematically corrupted by friends, publishers, editors, and printers, and also explores Stevenson's own role and responsibility in the process., 275389, Poetry, Drama & Criticism, 274876, Drama, 275013, Essays, Journals & Letters, 275068, History & Criticism, 863744, Literary Reference, 275117, Poetry, 274731, Shakespeare, William, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
