Cervantes’s Philosophies: The performance Don Quixote, Book 2, Chapter 23 by Res Ratio Network
AbstractThis article examines the working relationship between Lippincott editor Tay Hohoff and American author Harper Lee, asserting that Hohoff’s connection to Lee’s 1960 To Kill a Mockingbird went beyond the typical scope of an editor and is evident when considered biographically and through textual analysis. The article considers Hohoff’s significant contributions and influence when exploring the trajectory from Lee’s Go Set a Watchman to To Kill a Mockingbird, and takes into consideration Hohoff’s own significant writing project, A Ministry to Man: The Life of John Lovejoy Elliott. Hohoff’s book, published one year before Lee’s novel, contains distinct parallels in theme to Mockingbird and to the characterization of Atticus Finch, and her unmistakable editorial footprint becomes clear upon analyzing Mockingbird, Ministry, and Watchman cooperatively. Finally, the article connects recent scholarship and discussion on Hohoff and Lee, creating a cohesive foundation for its textual analysis and for future exploration of their relationship as editor and writer.
