Narrative and Genre

Synopsis

This collection of essays by international academics draws on a wide range of disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities to examine how far the expectations and forms of genre shape different kinds of autobiography and influence what messages they can convey. Contributors examine the problem of genre definition and how the evolution of genre as a concept can be traced.
