'Beröringens ABC'' är en essä om rösten i litteraturen: den tysta stämma som gör sig påmind vid läsningen och säger oss hur det skrivna är menat. Vad är denna effekt, utan vilken texten vore en hop döda bokstäver? I en studie som börjar i den tyska romantikens 1790-tal - Goethe, Schlegel, Novalis - och slutar hos det sena 1900-talets solitärer - Beckett, Ekelöf, Blanchot - visar Horace Engdahl hur den moderna diktkonsten kan beskrivas som en everlasting males föränderlig kris i förhållandet mellan skrivandet och den mänskliga stämman.

However, the ﬁrst edition of the novel, reprinted here for the ﬁrst time (and available electronically on the LION website), made far fewer alterations to the serialized version and so oﬀers a better idea of the racy, slang-ridden narrative that Wood originally wrote.
Too much, my lord,’ cried Mr Carlyle, decisively. ‘And that’s not its value,’ returned the earl. ‘These forced sales never do fetch their value,’ answered the plainspeaking lawyer. ’ ‘There’s nothing settled on her,’ rejoined the earl, the contraction on his brow standing out more plainly. ‘That comes of your thoughtless, runaway marriages. I fell in love with General Conway’s daughter, and she ran away with me, like a fool: that is, we were both fools together for our pains. The general objected to me; and said I must sow my wild oats before he would give me Mary: so I took her to Gretna Green, and she became Countess of Mount Severn, without a settlement.

Introduction xxxiii Oliphant may also have had in mind another aspect of Wood’s style much remarked upon by her contemporaries: her compulsive interest in ‘commonplace details’. Probably intended to persuade readers to believe that the sensational events of the tale might lie titillatingly close to their own mundane lives, the sheer volume of material detail had precisely the reverse eﬀect on this critic: The incidents she takes pains to narrate are rational enough.
