Riassunto: As a traditional site of historicist practice, medieval studies is particularly well-placed to benefit from the recent reemergence of historicism in literary studies. But this new "critical historicism" is different in both method and interests from past forms of historicist work. The differences are well illustrated by this collection. The concern with politics, the reliance on the materials of economic and social history, the conception of writing as a form of social practice, the focus upon the forces of change in medieval culture, the unwillingness to observe the usual distinction between literary and historical texts, and the historicization of their own practice--these characteristics make the publication of these essays a significant event for medieval studies.
L'autore: Lee Patterson is Professor of English and Chairman of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Duke University. He is the author of Negotiating the Past: The Historical Understanding of Medieval Literature (1987).
