Abstract
Applied to literary texts, the notion of performance is often reserved for forms of oral presentation. This article argues that such a characterization is anachronistic if projected onto Dutch literary texts from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. It proposes that performance manifests itself not in orality and the physical presence of a performer but in the interaction of a text with a specific place, moment, and audience. This is illustrated through several types of performance in the Testament Rhetoricael (1562), an important collection of lyrical texts by the Flemish poet and rhetorician Eduard De Dene.
