Sample text

He was interested in a birth; the birth of the reader. Since his intervention, both writing and the reader have superseded the author in a spectacular way: partly aided 38 John Hartley by game-changing technological developments unimagined in his day, associated with digital media, online connectivity and the internet; and partly abetted by the economic and political ascendancy of individualism in the wake of ReaganThatcherism and the end of the Cold War. These epochal changes wrought their own effects on authorship, because now, for the first time, everyone linked to digital media, including all those who were previously confined to the status of readers or consumers, are endowed with the agency of publishers for every single utterance they make online, from phatic chatter to elaborate artifice.

For corporate Vogue, a lot rides on it: it is a statement of – and an investment in – their confidence in the magazine’s editorial direction. J. 35 The film followed the magazine’s production process for the September 2007 issue. At 832 pages, that was the biggest fashion magazine ever published to that date. The job of producing each issue falls to the Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, who is much better known than her corporate bosses. 37 The movie, with Meryl Streep as the Wintour-like ‘‘Miranda Priestly,’’ ruthless editor of fictional Runway magazine, and Anne Hathaway as the ing´enue with a lot to learn, was a surprise box-office hit.

That capability remains in place to this day for popular drama, when TV ratings and first-weekend cinema box-office takings still organize production decisions in a way that publishers have never been able to match, at least until the launch of Nielsen’s BookScan in 2001. Then as now audience size was influenced by multiple considerations other than authorship – drawcards included the reputation of the theater, the company, the actors and the play, as well as that of the playwright. ’’20 In other words, Shakespeare was ahead of the game as a playwright, but behind it as an 28 John Hartley author: he made his money, and plenty of it – enough to buy himself the status of a gentleman – in the popular, commercial theaters as an entrepreneur-actor-writer, not through book sales, as an author.
