Exhibiting the Written Word

T. H. Harrison. "Letter to Oxford". Oxford : 1933.

A text that I am currently thinking of displaying online to undergraduate readers. T. H. Harrison accuses the Oxford students of the 1930s of having no backbone:
“It is unthinkable that these vile boys in Univ. should beat up Stephen Spender…But I am for intolerance. I am for beat ups. I am for good red hate. Put the miserable little man in the river. Put everyone in the river.”
Should be entertaining to exhibit.

Exhibiting the Written Word, a report about displaying texts from the National Library of Scotland, raises lots of thought-provoking points and provides interesting case studies with pictures.  I came across it through Helen Vincent’s IFLA conference presentation on “The library and the display of text”.
