In Stephen Greenblatt’s “Learning to Curse,” he discusses new historicism and its use of anecdotes or storytelling. He refers to the essay of Joel Fineman who says that the anecdotes “determines the destiny of a specifically historiographic integration of the event and context” is “the literary form or genre that uniquely refers to the real,” (4).

Using this in new historicism frames the events in the historical context it is set in. Greenblatt argues that anecdotes call for “explanation, contextualization and interpretation,” because they are a “disturbance,” (5).

“The Red umbrella and a band aid for 800 children” are completely different in the author’s purpose. They both are trying to paint the same picture though. The red umbrella is a fictional story that tells us about what happened in the 1960’s .A band aid for 800 is a non-fictional story. Both of the texts portrayed a similar theme which was that sometimes in life things don’t go according to plan but you have to adapt to it and know that it might be a positive change.

It too explained the changes of declination that comes with ageing that happens in terms of physiologically, psychologically and also social interactions. Over time, scholars soon shunned the disengagement theory, mentioning that empirical observations does not justify the theory. The disengagement theory was discredited by social scientists and gerontologists due to the conflict of theory and negative views regarding old age.

History does not exist, only present, as past is all myth While history is written by humans, it is difficult to distinguish between right and wrong due to various factors. Human beings in all ages and places have always had different arguments and viewpoints towards the similar issues. To illustrate, historians cannot agree that a specific type of issues is the main aspect of the time and location as most of historians worked under power. Therefore, historians could not write the truth which can confront the power above them. Additionally, various triggers cause the historian to interpret the events in a way which serves their objective as they provide examples which adjusts their argument and neglect some other facts.
