The Were-Wolf

Editorial Apparatus

Primary Texts


Clemence Housman invented her gothic story to entertain the women in her wood-engraving class in London in 1884. She first published "The Were-Wolf" in the 1890 Christmas number of Atalanta, where it was illustrated by Everard Hopkins. In 1896 she collaborated with her brother, Laurence Housman, to produce an illustrated edition of The Were-Wolf for John Lane at The Bodley Head. In addition to authoring the text, Clemence Housman wood-engraved the 6 illustrations, decorated title page, and illuminated initial designed by her brother, Laurence Housman. The COVE digital edition is likewise a collaborative work, produced by the W2018 graduate class in Digital Publishing in the Literatures of Modernity program at Ryerson University, with Professor Lorraine Janzen Kooistra acting as Editor in Chief.
