Pressestimmen

"This collection of authoritative essays on reading since the ancient Greeks marks the culmination of more than twenty years of work. [The editors] have assembled the leading scholars in the history of reading to provide a well-balanced, nearly comprehensive survey of developments in the West.... Mandatory reading for all scholars and their students in the history of the book and its many uses." - Libraries and Culture; "It is no exaggeration to say that these historians, mining sources ranging from the financial records of trade fairs to the annals of the Inquisitions, have transformed and revitalized the field of book history.... A landmark achievement." - San Francisco Chronicle; "Its usefulness to scholars of the history of the book, reading, writing, and print cultures is immense.... Although a different author wrote each of its thirteen chapters, the volume enjoys a wonderful coherence, in large part attributable to the collection's excellent introduction.... Deserves a place in the library of any than thirteen individual and specialized chapters.... Men and women have not always read in the same manner, even if societies from ancient Greece to the present have been societies of the written word, of the written text. A study of their reading practices, and of the textual objects they read, can, the editors of this volume believe, inform the larger transformations western society has undergone." - History of Reading News; "There is no way to encapsulate here the richness of these explorations." - Los Angeles Times Book Review

Synopsis

Literature has not always been written in the same ways, nor has it been received or read in the same ways over the course of Western civilization. Cavallo (Greek palaeography, U. of Rome La Sapienza), Chartier (+cole des Hautes +tudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris) and a number of other international contributors, address themes that highlight the t

The content is wonderful! The book provides much insight to different reading practices and how they change through the years. But...
1. The footnotes need to be on the same page as the text. It is hard to keep your place when you constantly have to flip to the back of the book. Also, if the notes were on the same page, I could see whether or not I needed to read the footnote for more information.
2. Provide tranlations of foreign quotations. I don't know about you, but it has been a while since I had a foreign language course.
3. Some of the chapters could be better edited. For example, in chapter 8 ("Protestant Reformations and Reading"), contributing author Jean-Francois Gilmont needs to pinpoint dates more clearly. He mentions a twenty-year span in which the separation of the printed book from the hand-lettered book was finally completed, but says it happened soon after Luther preached against indulgences (p. 214). If Luther talked to the Archbishop of Mainz in 1518 about indulgences, isn't it logical that it was not in 1540 that the separation was complete?
4. The style of writing seems to jump from readable to dry. I know each chapter is by a different author, but is there any way there could be more fluidity from chapter to chapter?
