From the Author:

Excerpt from Chapter One - "The Daughter's Discourse" ...

A woman's use of allegory and irony in autobiography plays out differently in both degree and kind. For a woman, writing an autobiography intended for publication, the male bildungsroman model of autobiography provides her with an allegorical structure that comes pre-patterned and overdetermined. If an autobiography's trajectory is traditionally intellectual and cultural, the female autobiographer's representation of her own body and her relationship to her mother and her mother's body are placed in immediate jeopardy. What may, in fact, be the most significant aspects in a woman's childhood and adolescence can instead become erased or distorted. To read a woman's autobiography, then, it may be necessary to explore the underside of her allegory, its dark continent of conscious and unconscious blindness.

About the Author:

She received her M.A. in Literature and Ph.D. in Modern Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
