Abstract

This book attempts to justify and theorize old historicism, defining archaeo-historicism as a method by which scholars can reconstruct past context in order to apply it to the interpretation of works and events of that time. The author draws mainly on English literature but also discusses American and other world literatures, theatre history, and music theory.
