Summary "Everywhere and Nowhere considers the ubiquity and near invisibility of both anonymity and mediation in the publication and circulation of literature. Anonymous authorship was typical of the time, yet literary critics and historians have been generally unable to account for anonymity as anything more than a footnote or curiosity. Bringing together history and media theory, Vareschi shows the entangled and mutually revealing relationship between mediation and anonymity"-- Provided by publisher
