Hunger and Love: The Chapter Titles and Numbers


Key:


TL Title list

Om. Omission


< > Deletion


Below I list the chapter titles of different states of Hunger and Love. The first of each of the titles listed, contained within the closing square bracket, is that of the chapter of the FC as it appears on the chapter header; the chapter number precedes the title. The titles outside the bracket apply to any variants of the chapter titles in earlier states of the novel, and where a state (TL, TL(R), TS or (TS(R)) is identical to the FC, it is not included in the list. Britton provisionally numbered the ‘Paradise’ chapter (later re-titled ‘Columbus of the Mind’) ‘3a’, and also omitted to re-number his chapters following the insertion of the final chapter he actually wrote, ‘Romance and Reality’, between Chapters 29 and 30, thereby giving two chapters numbered ‘30’ in both the TL(R) and the TS. For these reasons, I have numbered the earlier chapters below in accordance with their true sequence, using square brackets from Chapter 3a (now [4]) onwards. Where more that one chapter title and number is given with the FC this is usually because Britton has created one or more divisions from within the chapters of the earlier states. All significant punctuation differences have been included.
