Literally translated to “beside the text,” paratexts are parts of a book that accompany the main text yet are not essential parts of it. Examples include title pages, publication statements, prefaces to the reader, introductions, dust-jacket blurbs, and acknowledgements. Though often skipped over by readers, paratexts provide vital clues about the social, economic, and historical contexts in which a book was published and circulated.
