Sobre o livro
Feeling the Past in Seventeenth-Century China highlights the central role played by the body in writers' memories during the Ming-Qing cataclysm. Sight, sound, taste, and touch configured ordinary experiences next to traumatic events. This embodied experience reveals literature's mission of remembrance as a moral endeavor in cultural continuity.
