Volume XXX of this award-winning publication examines texts in relationship to the institutions that shaped early modern culture - the printing industry, the market-place of both texts and fashions, theatrical companies - as well as manuscript circulation, authorship, and issues relating to the family and paternity. In essays that range across the terrain of early modern culture, the contributors use a wide variety of methodologies to explore their interests and tackle fundamental questions. Renaissance Drama, an annual publication, is devoted to drama as a central feature of Renaissance culture. Displaying an interdisciplinary orientation, the essays in each volume explore the Renaissance dramatic traditions in relation to their precursors and successors and examine the impact of new forms of interpretation on the study of Renaissance plays.

The Empire of the Text

Writing and Authority in Early Imperial China

This unique study argues that in the Qin-Han period, there arose in China a regime of textual authority_one that overlapped but did not coincide with imperial authority. Drawing on a wide range of research and theory, Connery makes an original contribution to the analysis of early imperial elite culture, particularly in the fields of literature and linguistics, intellectual, and institutional history. The author provides new contexts for thinking about canonization and textual transmission systems, an innovative framework for analysis and discussion of the early imperial elite, a socio-ideological exploration of one strand of late Han 'Confucian' thought, and a critique of the concepts of subjectivity and the 'birth of lyricism' in China.
