Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the discussion of Chen Jiru and the background to development and subsequent uses of literary personae. The economic, cultural, and social relationships pertinent to Chen's literary personae and the literary market are germane to this book; a book which would fit neatly in a history of literary celebrity, dealing with questions such as how reputations are assembled and then change over time, and why they do so. Fame, celebrity, and associated issues are not especially well-researched areas in the history of Chinese literature, and Chen's celebrity was of a novel type in its day.

Keywords: Chen's literary personae; Chinese literature
