- Learning to Curse: Essays in Early Modern Culture by Stephen Greenblatt
Routledge, 188 pp, £25.00, January 1991, ISBN 0 415 90173 1
As befits an undisputed chef d’école, Stephen Greenblatt includes in this latest collection an account of his own ‘intellectual trajectory’, which features a decisive revulsion from his teachers at Yale, a submission to ‘the intellectual power and moral authority’ of Raymond Williams at Cambridge, and the almost inadvertent invention of the New Historicism, the école in question.
