Early Modern English Lives: Autobiography and Self-representation, 1500-1660
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., Jan 1, 2007 - Literary Criticism - 241 pages
Early Modern English Lives examines sixteenth- and seventeenth-century autobiographical practices in key contexts and modes of self-representation. Moving between diaries, letters, journals, memoirs, household and personal accounts, and major autobiographical texts, the study explores the social and historical conditions that shaped early modern life-writing. The authors argue that expressions of personal identity, along with the notion of privacy itself, involved an elaborate interplay of generic roles and cultural discourses.
