This course will define a genre of writing known as autobiography and highlight the ways in which writers have infused their work with an autobiographical perspective, both acknowledged or less directly stated. The approach will be interdisciplinary, uniting literary study with historical and cultural perspectives that will foster an appreciation for the ways in which an author’s life, time period, and culture are integrated with her or his writing. Authors as diverse as Yukio Mishima, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Maxine Hong Kingston and James Baldwin will be examined. The course will feature readings from fiction, nonfiction, poetry and drama.
