This chapter explores the tension between, on the one hand, manuals for the improvement of written and spoken language, norms for scholarly annotation, and ‘the Rules’ (identified with the learned book and reflecting the critical authority of the state) and, on the other hand, the ‘licentious’ theatre, embracing its own populism and drawing an alternative legitimacy from a spectatorship defined in opposition to the page.
