Paperback ISBN: 9780804720984
First published in 1987, this rich variety of essays confronts the changes in theories of the text and textuality that have seen a shift in focus from the author as a controlling agent to the scene of writing itself and the historical forces that produce that scene.
About the author
“One of the more important and original collections of theoretical essays in the field. . . . The issues it addresses are no less pertinent now than they were in 1987; they seem, indeed, to be of perennial importance.”—Anton Kaes, University of California, Berkeley
