Clarifying New Historicism through a Critical Look at the Papers Applying the Approach in Iran As an approach to the relationship between literature and history, new historicism has been highly received in Iranian academia. This reception was concomitant with some misunderstandings. A part of these misunderstandings is the result of the elusive nature of the approach. Moreover, lack of theoretical works in Iran has led to serious problems. Even though this approach is not a very recent one, it is a novelty in Iran. One of the reasons behind this novelty is lack of sufficient theoretical source in the field. A glance on the practice of new historicism reveals the interest in the field along with the lack of sufficient theoretical source has led to some misunderstanding. The present paper tries to correct some of the misunderstandings surrounding this approach. Keywords: New Historicism, History, Literature, Pathology, Power, Discourse, Greenblatt, Foucault.
