The Book and the Body

Edited by Dolores Warwick Frese and Katherine O’Brien O’Keeffe

In the four essays included in this volume, contributors critically examine the relationship between material and bodily aspects of text. Frese and O’Keeffe explore the liminal areas between the book and the body from contemporary perspectives. Though the approaches of these essays are widely varied, three concerns figure throughout the book: the gendered body and the copied book as locus of pain, pleasure, and desire.
