Arras Hanging: The Textile That Determined Early Modern Literature and Drama reveals that early modern writers aspired to produce narratives that replicated the structure and aesthetic of high-quality Renaissance tapestries in order to appeal to their audiences’ desire for a “hands-on” and idiosyncratic narrative experience. Specifically, Arras Hanging argues that their undescribed or “blank” tapestries invite audience members to project onto the narrative what they feel is missing, and thus weave themselves into the fiction.
