The New Historicism.
Hoover, Dwight W.
History Teacher, v25 n3 p355-66 May 1992
Questions assumptions of the New Historicism, a recent development in literary criticism. Suggests some problems that such an essentially political approach engenders. Includes lack of a common bond between author and reader, a universal model of historical change based upon the ideas of Marx and others, and contextualism. Argues that historians can find common meaning. (DK)
