Analyzing paradigmatic examples from Antiquity to the 19th century, the 13 essays in this collection investigate the production of historical knowledge from the vantage point of literary and cultural studies. Why did history supplant myth as the primary building block of literary artefacts? Where do the epistemological horizons of literature and history diverge? What are the ideological functions of the historical imagination in its changing contexts? With its particular focus on the first political mass medium – drama and theater throughout early modern Europe –, this volume elucidates the intricate relationship of reality and fiction and demonstrates how the representation of history in literature may affirm and legitimize political developments, but also question and travesty the means and ends of historical interpretation.
