In White's view, beyond the surface level of the historical text, there is a deep structural, or latent, content that is generally poetic and specifically linguistic in nature. This deeper content - the metahistorical element - indicates what an "appropriate" historical explanation should be.

Review:

Metahistory is something more than a study of philosophies of history (although it is that too, and no doubt the most important work in the field since Collingwood): it is also a methodological manifesto, a more sustained argument for a deep-figural hermeneutic than has been worked out anywhere before now.

(Diacritics)

This is a daring, ingenious... tour de force. White has produced a profoundly original 'critique of historical reason.'.

(American Historical Review)

A book that will simply have to be reckoned with by all historians who have the slightest interest in the genesis and forms of historical narrative.

(Journal of Modern History)
