Description

This volume brings together seventeen original papers on autobiography and autobiography studies by an international group of outstanding writers, critics, and scholars. The contributors address a wide range of autobiographical topics, from the general (Wallace Fowlie on writing autobiography and Felicity Nussbaum on conceptualizing diary) to the particular (James M. Cox's study of the memoirs of Henry James and Thomas R. Smith's assessment of Henry Adams's objectivity in The Education). An extended sequence on Afro-American and Native American autobiography, presents contributions by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., G. Thomas Couser, William L. Andrews, and John Sekora. A sequence on autobiographical writings by women includes Germaine Bree's essay on "autogynography" and contributions by Julia Watson, Suzanne Bunkers, and Linda H. Peterson. Papers by Ira B. Nadel, Paul John Eakin, Geoffrey Galt Harpham, Georges Gusdorf, and Charles J. Rzepka complete the book, making it an unusually broad-based and authoritative statement of current issues and themes in the field.show more
