Forms and Meanings: Texts, Performances, and Audiences from Codex to Computer
University of Pennsylvania Press, Aug 3, 2010 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 144 pages
In this provocative work, Roger Chartier continues his extraordinarily influential consideration of the forms of production, dissemination, and interpretation of discourse in Early Modern Europe. Chartier here examines the relationship between patronage and the market, and explores how the form in which a text is transmitted not only constrains the production of meaning but defines and constructs its audience.
