Comment on the Fiction of Narrative: Hayden White

Hayden white inspiring theories on history and stories: “all stories are fictions….depicted and presented  through metaphor, metonymy, synecdoche, irony” he claims… is a fascinating and courageous attempt to analyze the structure of historical narratives, the philosophy of history , and the tropics of discourse and figurations …. especially his book (meta history: the historical imagination in nineteenth century Europe) is worth reading to open a new horizon to interpret our past histories of consciousness, through our present lenses.

    1. Thanks Jennifer for your response. I do agree with you that more research should be done on Hayden Whites’s theories and approach. although I disagree with him about his perception of Oral History….

  1. Interesting discussion. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics.
