Drawing on contemporary feminist theory, this book explores the autobiographical writings of Alice James, Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf, Vera Brittain, Adrienne Rich and Audre Lorde. It focuses on the variety of forms autobiographical writing by women has taken and the different uses to which it has been put. It also argues that women's autobiographical writing pushes at the limits of theory, and provides new ways of thinking about female subjects. Throughout, the aim is to allow autobiographical texts to open up questions of how we read them and the knowledge we have of them. This book both enters into a debate with current theories of the subject and offers new readings of a variety of texts. It draws on feminist, psychoanalytic and post-structuralist theory.
