Description
 
Juliet Fleming (au). Investigates writing practices such as graffiti, tattooing & inscriptions on implements, jewelry, clothing & other objects in early modern England. The incidence of graffiti in this period has never been documented as such; the occurrence of tattooing has been unknown; inscribed objects are not usually considered as literary works. These are writing practices that invite us to imagine a world in which writing & drawing were not fully distinguishable, the page was not an important boundary, & modern assumptions as to what constitutes literacy were irrelevant. Provides a startling new perspective on 16th-century culture, one that requires us to re-examine what we thought we knew about writing, literature & their history in England. Illus.
