Margreta de Grazia discusses the revitalization, by print, of the ancient signet/wax trope signifying "both processes of conception: the having of thoughts and the having of children" (70); imaginatively ringing many changes upon this trope, she observes that "counterfeit coining, like usury, is frequently associated with sodomitic sex" (79) and that "letters could themselves be quite sexy, as they are in sixteenth-century embodied alphabets in which the body of the letter is represented by lusty human bodies in seductive poses and erotic positions" (87)--a far cry, one cannot help thinking, from the way children are wooed to love letters on Sesame Street.
