Description: Graffiti and the Writing Arts of Early Modern England is an excavation of a series of previously unknown or disregarded writing practices. Our modern assumptions regarding written expression have limited our examination of the history of writing and literacy to that which has been preserved in print or manuscript. In a work of tremendous originality and intellectual daring, Fleming brings detailed historical scholarship into dialogue with the challenge of contemporary theory to explore a lost realm where writing practices moved off the boundaries of the page to fill windows, body surfaces, ceramics, ceilings, and walls.Developing and drawing on an archive that has until now been closed to literary scholars, Fleming argues that the whitewashed wall was the primary writing apparatus of the early modern English, recovers the tattoo practices of sixteenth-century Europeans, and demonstrates how to read the poetic burden of early modern crockery. Her book is a work of cultural history that providesa startling new perspective on early modern writing, one that swerves from the preoccupations of generations of scholars in order to transform the fundamental terms of literary inquiry.
