Collection of essays, some better than others, some pro, some contra. Foucault this, Geertz that. Worthwhile for literature students who are interested in late 20th century developments.

Spivak's contribution is top notch. Fineman's reading of Thucydides is also slick, as is Shaeffer's reading of Vico. The standout is Pecora's interpretation of Geertz's work on Indonesia, which juxtaposes "local knowledge" and "thick description" against the CIA coup, which resulted in , Collection of essays, some better than others, some pro, some contra.

The standout is Pecora's interpretation of Geertz's work on Indonesia, which juxtaposes "local knowledge" and "thick description" against the CIA coup, which resulted in , murdered human persons and , unlawful detentions, whereof Geertz was constrained to a bizarre quasi-silence.

There's a few essays on feminism, and on marxism, and on various aspects of specific periods of literary history--all of which are a bit less memorable.

The two afterwards, by Hayden White and Stanley Fish, respectively, aren't particularly memorable, either; ditto, Greenblatt's introduction. Graff and Lentricchia each also make contributions--but I've already forgotten their arguments, too. Oct 11, Sean rated it it was ok Shelves: literary-theory-study. Representative sampling of a 'school' notorious for resisting classification. Generally, the approach to literature is rhetorically and intellectually dishonest essentially because being a 21st century Marxist is like being a follower of that crazy pastor who keeps predicting the end of the world: when what you swore was gonna happen don't happen, you need some fancy talkin' to keep the boat afloat.

Some of the essays in this volume, including some of both the laudatory and the critical essays, provide insight. Others are rants. There are two convictions, it seems to me, at the base of New Historicism. First, there is the conviction that everybody is caught in history; no one, including the scholar, is free from the constraints of her context material as well as ideological , yet neither has anyone unmediated access to material facts of reality. Second, By turns fascinating and irritating.

Second, human life consists of many competing voices and tendencies, so the context is not a single big idea that someone can rebel against or channel, for that matter ; resistance and consensus alike are forms of participation in a shifting conversation. Human thought and communication, at least in the modern and secular world, are therefore markets all the way down -- and all the way up.

The editor of this collection, Aram Veeser, divides these into five main assumptions: 1. Now, these assumptions can be taken in a politically and culturally conservative or a politically and culturally radical direction. What they rule out is any form of the belief that the scholar's own views are the endpoint and supreme judge of history. At the same time, they propose that the scholar is necessarily a judge in history -- as a participant in an exchange, not an impartial observer.

Seemingly, the critics in this volume cluster in two disciplinary camps. The historians say, "Ugh! Why don't you just do history? Why don't you just do politics?

Which is entirely in the spirit of the thing, considering that New Historicism appears to be all about limits. But on the whole, I think there's more heat than light here. Oct 06, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: for-thesis. Obnoxiously dense at times, but the essay by Joel Fineman was quite useful.
