These essays examine texts from the Renaissance to the Postmodern, analyzing transgression's formation as a product of textual interdependence with audience. It aims to show that subversion of gender politics, unexpected genre combinations and revised cultural histories result from textual transgression. The anthology emphasizes that transgression is not a transcendent transparent act that breaks cultural norms. Instead, western conceptions of text and audience construct the definitions and effect transgression.
