Increasing interest is being shown in the intersections between literary and cultural history and in the material dimensions of the text. Evelyn B. Tribble argues that far from being extratextual, as many scholars have contended, marginal commentary and text fuse together to form the page's inscribed identity. By tracing the connections between marginal apparatus, authority, and authorship, she demonstrates that changes in book production had profound consequences for the changing relations among readers, writers, and cultural authority in the early modern period. Margins and Marginality is, to date, the only book-length study of the marginal apparatus of Renaissance books.
