Subject: 	Ourselves in Shakespeare

When Hugh Grady writes, 'there is no historicism that does not imply a 
latent presentism', (Grady H 'Shakespeare Studies, 2005: Vol 1 No 1 June 
2005: A Situated Overview') I think he is saving the theoretical baby 
from the pc bathwater. When he says he seeks to re-function the term 
'presentism', he is looking to permit into the debate 'theoretical 
movements of the 1970 and 1980s, structuralist, post-structuralist, 
marxist, feminist and psychoanalytic.' I completely agree with him. You 
cannot pass judgment on things that are so close to your eyes. Just a 
thought.

Cheers,
Julia
