Complete registryShow full item record
This essay examines some of the recent theories on autobiography, and specifically on female autobiography. It tackles thus the particular problems of marginality and search for identity that recur in some of the autobiographies written by women in the last two decades, dealing with D.C. Stanton's proposal of autogynography. These theoretical principles are applied to the analysis of Rebecca West's Family Memories (1987), Antonia White's As Once in May. The Early Autobiography of Antonia White and Other Writings (1983), and Kathleen Raine's Farewell Happy Fields (1973), The Land Unknown (1975) and The Lion's Mouth (1977).
