History Has To Be Studied

Barker and Hulme, ''Nymphs and Reapers Heavily Vanish'' -- Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)

"Our essay too must engage in the discursive struggle that determines the history within which the Shakespearean texts will be located and red: it matters what kind of history that is" (449).

This quote was meaningful to me because Hulme and Barker's essay was based upon their study of The Tempest. I have spent much time studying The Tempest and I think their criticism of The Tempest . They had brought up many valid points and it is crucial to understand Shakespeare's time and the history of his culture because it will allow us to better understand our past and future history.
