Self impression : life-writing, autobiografiction, and the forms of modern literature by Max Saunders ( Book )
14 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Modernism is often characterized as a movement of impersonality; a rejection of auto/biography. But most of the major works of European modernism and postmodernism engage in very profound and central ways with questions about life-writing, Max Saunders explores the ways in which modern writers from the 1870s to the 1930s experimented with forms of life-writing--biography, autobiography, memoir, diary, journal--increasingly for the purposes of fiction. He identifies a wave of new hybrid forms from the late nineteenth century and uses the term àutobiografiction'--discovered in a surprisingly early essay of 1906--to provide a fresh perspective on turn-of-the-century literature, and to propose a radically new literary history of Modernism." "Saunders offers a taxonomy of the extraordinary variety of experiments with life-writing, demonstrating how they arose in the nineteenth century as the pressures of secularization and psychological theory disturbed the categories of biography and autobiography, in works by authors such as Pater, Ruskin, Proust, M̀ark Rutherford', George Gissing, and A.C. Benson. He goes on to look at writers experimenting further with autobiografiction as impressionism turns into Modernism, juxtaposing compelling and original readings of key Modernist texts by Joyce, Stein, Pound, and Woolf, with explorations of the work of other authors--including H. G. Wells, Henry James, Joseph Conrad, Ford Madox Ford, and Wyndham Lewis--whose experiments with life-writing forms are no less striking. The book concludes with a consideration of the afterlife of these fascinating experiments in the postmodern literature of Nabokov, Lessing, and Byatt." "Self Impression sheds light on a number of significant but under-theorized issues; the meanings of the term àutobiographical', the generic implications of literary autobiography, and the intriguing relation between autobiography and fiction in the period."--BOOK JACKET

Perspectives on mobility by Ingo Berensmeyer ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Literature as cultural discourse has always courted mobility. From the nomadic wanderings of the heroes of Homer and Virgil through the adventures of the medieval knight-errants to the travellers of modern times, movement and mobility have been constitutive elements of story-telling. Since writers have begun to explore the experiential dimension of movement their texts have embraced the essential changeability and instability of 'mobile worlds'. In this sense literature reflects and processes the transformative force of movement on the perception of the world and is part of the broader cultura
