Hayden White probes the notion of authority in art and literature and examines the problems of meaning - its production, distribution, and consumption - in different historical epochs. In the end, he suggests, the only meaning that history can have is the kind that a narrative imagination gives to it. The secret of the process by which consciousness invests history with meaning resides in the content of the form, in the way our narrative capacities transforms the present into a fulfillment of a past from which we would wish to have desceneded

Figural realism : studies in the mimesis effect by Hayden V White( Book )

27 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Figural Realism, White collects eight interrelated essays primarily concerned with the treatment of history in recent literary critical discourse. "'History' is not only an object we can study," White observes, "it is also and even primarily a certain kind of relationship to 'the past' mediated by a distinctive kind of written discourse. It is because historical discourse is actualized in its culturally significant form as a specific kind of writing that we may consider the relevance of literary theory to both the theory and the practice of historiography.""--Jacket
The fiction of narrative : essays on history, literature, and theory, 1957-2007 by Hayden V White( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For students and scholars of historiography, the theory of history, and literary studies, Robert Doran (French and comparative literature, U. of Rochester) gathers together 23 previously uncollected essays written by theorist and historian Hayden White (comparative literature, Stanford U.) from 1957 to 2007, on his theories of historical writing and narrative. Essays are organized chronologically and reveal the evolution of White's thought and its relationship to theories of the time, as well as the impact on the way scholars think about historical representation, the discipline of history, and how historiography intersects with other areas, especially literary studies. They specifically address theory of tropes, theory of narrative, and figuralism

Hauptbeschreibung Kubakrise und Vietnamkrieg, Bürgerrechtsbewegung und ""Great Society"", Woodstock und Mondlandung - die ""Sixties"" zählen in der Geschichte der USA zu den ereignisreichsten Jahrzehnten überhaupt. Wie aber kam es zu den politischen, sozialen und kulturellen Umwälzungen dieser Dekade und welche Konflikte sind noch heute virulent? Drücken sie dem ""American Way of Life"" des 21. Jahrhunderts immer noch ihren Stempel auf? Die Autorinnen und Autoren spüren diesen Fragen nach - genau 50 Jahre, nachdem John F. Kennedy 1963 den Schüssen von Dallas zum Opfer fiel. <br
