Approaching writing as a form of cultural practice and understanding text as an historical object, this book not only recovers elements of the ritual practice of Middle-Period weddings, but also reassesses the relationship between texts and the Middle-Period past. Its fourfold narrative of the writing of weddings and its spirited engagement with the texts-ritual manuals, engagement letters, nuptial songs, calendars and almanacs, and legal texts-offer a form and style for a cultural history that accommodates the particularities of the sources of the Chinese imperial past. Book jacket.
