Art of revision

Joyce Carol Oates recently rewrote one of her older novels when the publisher asked her to check it for errors before a reissue. More interesting to me (since I’m not really a devotee of Ms. Oates) is the discussion in this article of other writers who evinced a propensity to rewrite. Thomas Hardy, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tennessee Williams, Walt Whitman, and William Wordsworth are mentioned. (Via Bookslut.)
