Abstract


This essay approaches the question ‘What is a letter?’ via two more general questions, ‘What is a genre?’, and ‘What is a category?’ It offers an overview of how concept and category research can help answer these questions; how scholarship on letters might extend category research; and how this cross-fertilization may illuminate epistolary texts, structures, cultures and histories.
