Women, Autobiography, Theory Résumé

Women, Autobiography, Theory: A Reader Sidonie Smith

Women, Autobiography, Theory is the first comprehensive guide to the burgeoning field of women's autobiography, drawing into one volume the most significant theoretical discussions on women's life writing of the last two decades.

The authoritative introduction by Sidonie Smith and Julia Watson surveys writing about women's lives from the women's movement of the late 1960s to the present. It also relates theoretical positions in women's autobiography studies to postmodern, poststructuralist, postcolonial, and feminist analyses.

The essays from thirty-nine prominent critics and writers include many considered classics in this field. They explore narratives across the centuries and from around the globe, including testimonios, diaries, memoirs, letters, trauma accounts, prison narratives, coming-out stories, coming-of-age stories, and spiritual autobiographies. A list of more than two hundred women's autobiographies and a comprehensive bibliography of critical scholarship in women's autobiography provide invaluable information for scholars, teachers, and readers.

Women, Autobiography, Theory Avis

"There is no other reader like this one on theories of women's autobiography, despite the now wide-ranging approaches to this field. . . . It has the merit of combining within the genre of autobiography criticism many of the critical issues that have been paramount during the past two decades, incorporating and going beyond what both feminism and cultural studies have attempted. Important and timely."-Francoise Lionnet, Northwestern University
