Thorsten Ries: ‘die geräte klüger als ihre besitzer’. Philologische Durchblicke hinter die Schreibszene des Graphical User Interface. Überlegun- gen zur digitalen Quellenphilologie, mit einer textgenetischen Studie zu Michael Speiers ‘ausfahrt st. nazaire’. In: Editio, 24 , pp. 149-199, 2010.

Abstract

While contemporary authors are shifting from pen and scratch paper to word processors, questions arise whether there is still a material basis for textual criticism, scholarly editions and the ‹critique génétique›. A quick glance at forensic computer science shows that original hard disks, for example, most probably contain significant amounts of recoverable data. These include drafts and transitional text material as well as metadata authors are hardly aware of. In its second part the article turns to the analysis of a number of document files from the ‹dossier génétique› of Michael Speier’s poem exit st. nazaire. Apart from metadata analysis and chronological reconstruction, the draft documents shed light on the
process of writing, specific writing strategies and poetological aspects.
