While post structuralism and deconstruction have been accused of privileging language over history, the New historicism and other historicist and cultural approaches to literature have attempted to restore historys place in the study of literature.

Taking its title from a reading of the wordLippe in Kleists Die ermannsschlacht, Borders of a Lip is drawn to neither of these poles, but instead to their meeting place or coincidence: the site of a border, a political or national boundary even the boundary that is the political, the lip that is also the place of language. Through readings of Kant, Wordsworth, Kleist, Mary Shelley, Yeats, and Lyotard, the book examines the convergence of language and history that takes place in their work. Instead of placing language and history in absolute opposition, making the border an unbreachable limit the book explores how crossing these borders (re)defines the political.
