Overview

Until recently biography and autobiography were seen to be secondary to the novel, poem, and drama. However, since late last century and what is often called the age of memoir writers and readers have turned to autobiographical writing as an innovative and dynamic field in its own right. This book returns to the late eighteenth century and slave narrative as the beginning of a long and vibrant tradition of autobiographical writing in colonial and postcolonialliteratures, and it draws together a selection of topics and texts from Africa, the Caribbean, Africa, North America, and India to encourage readers and students to take a more expansive and innovativeapproach to this field.
