"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 transform the present into a fulfillment of a past from which we would wish to have descended"--Unedited summary from book cover

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

28 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 884 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 )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 429 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

The practical past by Hayden V White( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and Japanese and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hayden White borrows the title for The Practical Past from philosopher Michael Oakeshott, who used the term to describe the accessible material and literary-artistic artifacts that individuals and institutions draw on for guidance in quotidian affairs. The Practical Past, then, forms both a summa of White's work to be drawn upon and a new direction in his thinking about the writing of history. White's monumental Metahistory: The Historical Imagination in Nineteenth-Century Europe (1973) challenged many of the commonplaces of professional historical writing and wider assumptions about the ontology of history itself. It formed the basis of his argument that we can never recover "what actually happened"in the past and cannot really access even material culture in context. Forty years on, White sees "professional history" as falling prey to narrow specialization, and he calls upon historians to take seriously the practical past of explicitly "artistic" works, such as novels and dramas, and literary theorists likewise to engage historians
The beloved returns = Lotte in Weimar by Thomas Mann( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mann's novelistic biography of Goethe was first published in English in 1940. Lotte in Weimar is a vivid dual portrait, a complex study of Goethe and of Lotte, the still-vivacious woman who in her youth was the model for Charlotte in Goethe's widely-read The Sorrows of Young Werther. Lotte's thoughts, as she anticipates meeting Goethe again after forty years, and her conversations with those in Weimar who knew the great man, allow Mann to assess Goethe's genius from many points of view. Hayden White's fresh appraisal of the novel reveals its consonances with our own concerns

Metahistoria : la imaginación histórica en la Europa del siglo XIX by Hayden V White( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Análisis de las principales tramas o formas de conciencia histórica del siglo XIX. En esta obra el autor busca poner en claro las formas representativas de la reflexión histórica propias del siglo XIX, las cuales requieren para su estudio de una teoría formal. La comprensión de esas formas de conciencia y representación histórica, de su sentido y significado son explicadas o protocoladas por el lenguaje poético y literario de los historiadores: Michelet, Ranke, Tockeville, y Burkhardt, y filósofos de la historia como Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche y Croce, la mayoría de ellos pensadores europeos considerados por White representantes del pensamiento del siglo XIX. En efecto, en Metahistoria, White descubre las estructuras profundas para la explicación y comprensión del lenguaje poético que subyace en los diferentes discursos históricos, así como las formas de articulación o estilos historiográficos que ejemplifican cada uno de los tipos de narración o relato del pasado. Para enriquecer más su texto desde la perspectiva metahistórica, White recurre a los estilos historiográficos, que representan las combinaciones en que la trama histórica se hace presente en el discurso a través de las narraciones y conceptualizaciones que prefiguran precriticamente el pasado del hombre y la sociedad como elementos específicamente lingüísticos, poéticos e ideológicos en los que se basa la historiografía del siglo XIX
