Languages of publication
The author of the article presents Hayden White’s understanding of historicalnarrative. This tropological understanding of history emphasizes common constructiveprocesses in the writing of fiction and historical narrative. According toWhite, historians use fictive elements (narrative structures) in writing historicalnarratives, which are important for their understanding. This is the opposite viewto the traditional “scientific” understanding of historical narratives which supposethat the significance of literary dimension of historical narrative disappears in theprocess of creating one universal narrative about the past. Contemporary postmodernculture supports radical plurality of historical narratives, which reduces thepossibility of writing such a universal historical narrative. From the point of view ofthe author, the developing era of digitalization will have a negative impact on literaryskill of young generation as well as the writing of historical narrative.
