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.
“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
