Forms and Meanings: Texts, Performances, and Audiences from Codex to Computer - New Cultural Studies (Paperback)Roger Chartier (author)
- Not available
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.

"Drawing on a wide variety of evidence, including inventories of the costumes, program notes, and contemporary correspondence, Chartier provides a wonderfully rich account of what the performances meant."-Robert Darnton, New York Review of Books
