Introduction to Theory of Literature (ENGL 300)
In this lecture, Professor Paul Fry examines the work of two seminal New Historicists, Stephen Greenblatt and Jerome McGann. The origins of New Historicism in Early Modern literary studies are explored, and New Historicisms common strategies, preferred evidence, and literary sites are explored. Greenblatts reliance on Foucault is juxtaposed with McGanns use of Bakhtin. The lecture concludes with an extensive consideration of the project of editing of Keatss poetry in light of New Historicist concerns.
