Questions about how and why we read the past continue to demand the attention of cultural critics. Reading the Past introduces key debates about history, historiography, and historicism which have transformed approaches to the past in departments of History and Literature. It includes influential and provocative theoretical essays as well as lively case studies and readings by literary critics and historians. The emphasis is on providing teachers and students with accessible yet challenging material to stimulate debate.
