9789004236578: The Embodied Text: Establishing Textual Identity in Early Chinese Manuscripts (Studies in the History of Chinese Texts)

In The Embodied Text Matthias L. Richter offers an exemplary study of a 300 BCE Chinese manuscript, exploring significant differences between the Warring States manuscript text and its transmitted early imperial counterparts. These differences reveal the adaptation of the text to a changed political environment as well as general ideological developments. This study further demonstrates how the physical embodiment of the text in the manuscript reflects modes of textual formation and social uses of written texts.

About the Author:

Review:

I would hate [..] to give the impression that I think this book is anything other than a superb work of scholarship. [ ] in its care for the presentation of the manuscript itself, Richter s study of "Min zhi fumu" will surely serve as a model for future studies of the many individual manuscripts of ancient China that have been unearthed in recent years. Edward L. Shaughnessy, "Journal of Chinese Studies," 59 (2014)"
