Make your paper is documented correctly using MLA format! Historical CriTcism/New Historicism HisTorical cri±cism explores The hisTorical, social, poli±cal, and culTural conTexTs surrounding The crea±on and recep±on oF a work oF liTeraTure; iT uses hisTory as a means oF undersTanding a liTerary work more clearly. HisToricisTs aim simulTaneously To undersTand The work Through iTs hisTorical conTexT and To undersTand culTural and inTellecTual hisTory Through liTeraTure. ²wo premises oF hisTorical cri±cism are ThaT The social, poli±cal, and culTural conTexTs (The hisTorical in³uences) a´ecT The crea±on oF works oF liTeraTure and ThaT The meaning oF liTeraTure changes over ±me as These same conTexTs change. HisTorical cri±cism examines boTh The ±me period wiThin The sTory and The ±me period in which The sTory was writen. ²he responses oF The original audience are oF inTeresT To The hisTorical cri±c, as are The meanings and implica±ons oF specifc words, symbols, images, and characTers Through ±me. We can hardly undersTand characTers' lives wiThouT some sense oF The ±me and place in which They lived, and we can hardly undersTand The auThor's purpose wiThouT undersTanding The culTural norms and evenTs during The wri±ng oF The work. µor example, in Sense and SensibiliTy, writen by Jane AusTen in 1795, when MargareT is Talking abouT a man ¶oF no proFession¶ iT conTains a di´erenT meaning Than iT would Today. During AusTen'¶s ±me in England, The man wiThouT a proFession would have been a genTleman, a man oF wealTh. In addi±on, knowing The English laws regarding women owning properTy aT The ±me The novel was writen noT only is impera±ve To undersTanding why The women in The sTory are impoverished even Though Their FaTher died very rich, buT The knowledge also allows The reader To recognize Themes ThroughouT The TexT rela±ng To The TreaTmenT oF women. LiTerary works are born ouT oF very specifc momenTs in hisTory. ²he work is inFused wiTh The values and evenTs oF ThaT ±me, and, conversely, a powerFul piece oF liTeraTure can e´ec±vely in³uence The Thinking and ac±ons oF iTs body oF readers. As such, considering The ±me period in which a liTerary work was creaTed and The conTexT oF The sTory iTselF is an imporTanT analy±cal Task. Using NineTeen EighTy-µour,
