Abstract:

One of the most important parts of portrait essays is to understand that any depiction of another person—whether a famous stranger or a family member—is also a depiction of the writer. With this lecture, you’ll delve into this dynamic between a subject and its writer and examine this power struggle as it plays out in a portrait essay. Using examples from Truman Capote and Scott Russell Sanders, you’ll see how your own anxieties and prejudices can come through in an essay focused entirely on someone else.
