Literary Texts and Encodings: Questions for Discussion
One of the goals of our project is to present the literary texts of the chansons in various ways. David Fiala and his students have already made considerable progress in transcribing the texts of the chansons (see the companion web site here). We nevertheless need to make some basic editorial decisions the sorts of scholarly questions we want to address in our study of these texts, and thus how we want to encode them using TEI and other tools. Do we want …
- notes on verse and rhyme structure (as an aid to analysis of the music)?;
- English translations?;
- information about differences among the texts as presented in each of the four voice parts?;
- information about abbreviations, and notation of mute “e”?;
- with information about the circulation of the poetry in other musical settings, and in literary sources, too (both for critical study of the texts and also for their reception history). Thus notes on authorship, sources, and textual variants in sources beyond the Du Chemin books?
- How will users want to consult these various encodings?
