Hayden White

Hello, everyone. I've been lurking ont this site for awhile, but been a little hesitant to post. I was wondering if any on you had ever read Hayden White's, "The Historical Text as Literary Artifact." I'm actually an English major, but the article came up in my criticism class. What did you think of White's assertions that all historical accounts fit into literary-style plot structures? It seems somewhat farfetched to me.

Sorry - this has absolutely nothing to do with martial arts! Maybe verbal jujitsu - or something.

welcome to the history forum :)

I don't have an aswer for you, but as long as your question is history related, feel free to post it. We're not going to delete it if it's not about MA :)
