Item Description...
Overview
New Historicism has been a highly controversial and influential movement in university literature departments for almost twenty years. Biblical studies now wrestles with this force and evaluates its potential for interpretation. With lucid and jargon-free description, this study sets forth New Historicism for the nonspecialist. Defining New Historicism as a mindset rather than a method, it traces the development, discusses recurring features, and offers illustrations of this new literary approach. Here biblical texts are plunged back into the swirling currents of historical context only to disclose their plural, contradictory, fragmentary, and heterogeneous character. This includes the histories associated, represented, and embedded in those texts. In the process, the carefully guarded distinctions between text and context, history and literature, past and present, fade. In exchange for the loss of these tidy categories, New Historicism promises sufficient compensation-namely, a potential venue where the sharply drawn border currently separating historical investigations from literary studies in biblical interpretation can be negotiated.

A Quest for an Interdisciplinar Art of Reading  Nov 15, 2003
Giana Hens-Piazza presents to the biblical scholarship the so-called "New Historicism" in a very fine and correct way. The reader will enjoy the opportunity of the New Historicism to construct an interdisciplinary platform of reading, that integrates the critics of the postmodernity and the challenge of history. The author demonstrates the opportunities of the New Historicism to affront the question of history in a postmodern and multicultural context : these book is a must for all the biblical scholars interested in the debate about the interpretations and the arts of reading.

After the presentation of the features of the New Historicism, Giana Hens-Piazza presents the recent history of the New Historicism and discusses about the similarities and the differences between Historicism and New Historicism. The 4th chapter tells us about the diverse background of the New Historicism (Foucault, Bakthin, Geertz, Turner) and signals the important etudes in this movement that has been started by the works of Stephen Greenblatt in the 80's. After the pertinent questions of the Reader-Oriented Criticism addressed to the New Criticism, we assist now to the return of the challenges of ethic and politic in link with "the return of a new history", if we can speak so. The chapter 5th tells about the first biblical new historicist readings (three examples of the Old Testament).

The last chapter tries to evaluate the future of New Historicism that has been already called «passed» by certain critics. This is not the opinion of G. Hens-Piazza who feels very optimistic for this approach, even the first contact between biblical scholars and literary scholars in New Historicism were not good. I think it is the task of everybody to keep open a platform of thinking, and even the so-open New Historicism is tempted to want to keep his territory.

The book has only two disadvantages : firstly, it doesn't speak about the European ways of thinking and reading that are near of the New Historicism (for example "la nouvelle historiographie française"). This point is important, because the challenge thinking history after postmodernity is common to diverse cultures and fields of studies now (ethnohistoricism, anthropology, historiography, aso). Secondly, the author doesn't present systematically the difficulties or non-explored questions of the New Historicism. Personally, I think that the New Historicism risks to stay at the point of "the reading of the reading". This movement wishes to give a sense for the future, as it says it explicitly, but it is not evident how it tries to make it. Proposing senses for the future is linked with the challenge to think our collective memory and with the challenge to consider ourselves as a community (cf. La communauté affrontée of the French philosoph Jean-Luc Nancy). The question of the construction of our collective memory leads to consider the place of the narrativity and its analyze in the literary and historical criticism.
