This study focuses on the concept of the theatrical to read those novels and their commentaries. Imbued with performances, playacting, spectacles, and spectatorship, the early modern theatrical novel borrowed heavily from theater to conflate the theatrical and the real, juggle theatrical roles, persons, and identities, and contest orthodoxies by challenging and appropriating sites of control and authority.

This study showcases the theatrical novel s unique position as a new form of literati self-representation in response to the destabilizing social and political forces of early modern China.
