Title: Spook spreekt een woordje terug
Author(s): SPIES, Marijke
Journal: Spiegel der Letteren
Volume: 51 Issue: 4 Date: 2009
This article is a reply to Jürgen Pieters’s two contributions published earlier in Spiegel der Letteren 2005 and 2009. In those texts Pieters discussed the role of New Historicism in the study of Dutch historical texts. Compared to the innovative New Historicist methodology, the approach of the present author was said to be hopelessly out of date. The present article analyses Pieters’s arguments and tries to counter them.
