Summary
"A study of the complex interactions between poetry and photography during the late Qing and Republican eras, at the moment when photography becomes widespread in Chinese cultural life. A relationship between image and text was forged through inscription or writing on photographs and the pairing of poems and photographs in magazines, photo albums, and poetry anthologies. By detailing the various ways in which traditional ideas, forms, and textual traditions were integrated, negotiated, or set into conflict with the new visual culture, the book demonstrates how the dynamics of textuality and visuality and the mediation of a range of emotions (romantic love, eroticism, empathy, and self-consciousness) were deeply implicated in the cross-cultural exchanges of technologies and regimes of power in the formation of Chinese literary and visual modernities"--
