About this product
- DescriptionIn Achieving Autobiographical Form Nicholas Meihuizen argues that significant autobiographies achieve significant forms, peculiar to themselves alone. Form, he argues, is t accidental or merely functional. The author arrives at a form through a careful negotiation between the self's immersion in its world and its ability to distance itself from this world. The quality of the resultant self-scrutiny enables the author to transform everyday reflex into the act of attention that results in formal achievement, a uniquely crafted structure. Meihuizen's book helps demonstrate how each piece of autobiographical writing under consideration in it (works by Yeats, Conrad, Martin Amis, Frank Kermode, Andrew Motion, Roy Campbell, Richard Murphy, and J.M. Coetzee) discovers a unique form.
- Author BiographyNicholas Meihuizen is a Professor of English at North-West University, Potchefstroom campus, South Africa. He is author of Yeats and the Drama of Sacred Space (Rodopi, 1998), and Ordering Empire: The Poetry of Camoes, Pringle, and Campbell (Peter Lang, 2007).
