The poetics of sovereignty : on Emperor Taizong of the Tang Dynasty by Jack Wei Chen( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work focuses on Taizong's literary writings that speak directly to the relationship between cultural form and sovereign power, as well as on the question of how the Tang negotiated dynastic identity through literary stylistics. The author maintains that Taizong's writings may have been self-serving at times, representing strategic attempts to control his self-image in the eyes of his court and empire, but that they also become the ideal image to which his self was normatively bound. This is the paradox at the heart of imperial authorship: Taizong was simultaneously the author of his representation and was authored by his representation; he was both subject and object of his writings. --Book Jacket
