Nonfiction > Theodore Roosevelt > History as Literature
TR
There has been much discussion as to whether history should not henceforth be treated as a branch of science rather than of literature.… As regards part of the discussion, the minds of the contestants have not met, the propositions advanced by the two sides being neither mutually incompatible nor mutually relevant. There is, however, a real basis for conflict in so far as science claims exclusive possession of the field.

History as Literature
 
Theodore Roosevelt
 
In his preface, Theodore Roosevelt states, “In these addresses and essays I have discussed not merely literary but also historical and scientific subjects, for my thesis is that the domain of literature must be ever more widely extended over the domains of history and science.” These engaging and thought-provoking works cover such topics as modern art, the pursuit of scholarship, science and history, and the poetry of Dante.
