Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of author names and terms that are mentioned in the book The Eternal Present of the Past: Illustration, Theater, and Reading in the Wanli Period, 1573–1619. The book draws together the various elements of Wanli culture and examines their interrelation and intersection in the context of the drama publication. It particularly focuses on drama illustrations because they epitomize most of the important trends and developments in illustration during the Wanli era (1573–1619). As drama illustrations are bound up with two different and conflicting media, the book attempts to illuminate how these media responded to each other and collided with each other due to the sudden increase in quantity and quality of printed plays during the Wanli period.

Keywords: drama publication; Index; Wanli period
