Mr. Safire would appreciate your insights in particular. In addition, could you comment on the term "presentism"? According to the _OED_, it has been around since the 1970's. It means "seeing the past through the glass of the present," and I believe, although I don't yet have an answer, that it is used by new-historicist critics. If you would like to reply, please do so by tomorrow morning. Mr. Safire is on deadline. Thanks.
