Language and Historical Representation
summary
“This may well be the most important contribution to the linguistically informed study of historiography since Hayden White’s Metahistory. Looking at historical texts, Kellner is able to show us that they are more complex, and bear a more complicated relationship to reality, than we think. His scholarship is not only sound but is on the cutting edge or recent reflection on historiography. . . . The insights, not rarely, are stunning.”—Allan Megill, University of Iowa
