"Miríades por toda a eternidade": a atualidade de E. P. Thompson "Myriads of eternity": the actuality of E. P. Thompson

By Alexandre Fortes

Abstract

O artigo reexamina o trabalho clássico de E. P. Thompson, nele identificando elementos relevantes para o estudo do contexto histórico contemporâneo. Critica as abordagens que buscaram sintetizar um "método thompsoniano" em algumas fórmulas do prefácio da obra recorrentemente citadas. Defende ainda que a compreensão do persistente apelo do livro deve ser buscada na análise de sua estrutura narrativa.<br>The article re-examines the classic work by E. P. Thompson, The making of the English working class, identifying many elements relevant to the study of the contemporary historical context. It criticizes those approaches that look to synthesize a 'Thompsonian method' in a number of recurrently cited formulas found in the preface to the work. It also argues that the persistent appeal of the book can be explained through an analysis of its narrative structure
