490 1  Chinese literature and culture in the world 
504    Includes bibliographical references and index. 
505 0  Introduction: Entering the Language Continuum -- 1. 
       Silence, Script, and "New Understandings" -- 2. Figures, 
       Hieroglyphs, and Ciphers, -- 3. Ships, Bricks, and the 
       Majesty of Writing: The New Century -- Conclusion. 
520    This detailed, chronological study investigates the rise 
       of the European fascination with the Chinese language up 
       to 1615. By meticulously investigating a wide range of 
       primary sources, Dinu Luca identifies a rhetorical 
       continuum uniting the land of the Seres, Cathay, and China
       in a tropology of silence, vision, and writing. Tracing 
       the contours of this tropology, The Chinese Language in 
       European Texts: The Early Period offers close readings of 
       language-related contexts in works by classical authors, 
       medieval travelers, and Renaissance cosmographers, as well
       as various merchants, wanderers, and missionaries, both 
       notable and lesser-known. What emerges is a clear and 
       comprehensive understanding of early European ideas about 
       the Chinese language and writing system.
