Review quote

"The publication of 'The Content of the Form' an important event. It shows that for a long period White has been unremittingly concerned with a revaluation of the concept of narrative in the contemporary context, and that the various different intellectual stimuli which he has received have all helped to focus his intense study of the subject."--'London Review of Books' "This 'oeuvre' will continue to force us to pay close, careful, rigorous attention to the syntheses he offers, so that anyone who 'reads'--whether fiction, history, biography, autobiography, whatever--needs to have examined the writings of Hayden White."--'Style'
