About this title


Bahti shows how narrative or interpretive language produces historical meaning--and how this meaning is reached at the expense not only of the historical "facts" but also of the purported intent (or "storyline") of the narrative itself.


"Bahti's study of lyric 'ends' (directions, motivations, resolutions) contains exceedingly intricate readings of poems by Shakespeare, Leopardi, Coleridge, Keats, Hölderlin, Baudelaire, Stevens, and Celan... [there is a] extreme sophistication and clarity [to] each reading." -- Choice

"Any inquiry into [history as allegory] will have to begin with Bahti's work." -- MLN

"Valuable and illuminating." -- American Historical Review
