Self impression : life-writing, autobiografiction, and the forms of modern literature by Max Saunders( Book )

"Modernism is often characterized as a movement of impersonality; a rejection of auto/biography. But most of the major works of European modernism and postmodernism engage in very profound and central ways with questions about life-writing, Max Saunders explores the ways in which modern writers from the 1870s to the 1930s experimented with forms of life-writing--biography, autobiography, memoir, diary, journal--increasingly for the purposes of fiction. He identifies a wave of new hybrid forms from the late nineteenth century and uses the term àutobiografiction'--discovered in a surprisingly early essay of 1906--to provide a fresh perspective on turn-of-the-century literature, and to propose a radically new literary history of Modernism." "Saunders offers a taxonomy of the extraordinary variety of experiments with life-writing, demonstrating how they arose in the nineteenth century as the pressures of secularization and psychological theory disturbed the categories of biography and autobiography, in works by authors such as Pater, Ruskin, Proust, M̀ark Rutherford', George Gissing, and A.C. Benson. He goes on to look at writers experimenting further with autobiografiction as impressionism turns into Modernism, juxtaposing compelling and original readings of key Modernist texts by Joyce, Stein, Pound, and Woolf, with explorations of the work of other authors--including H.G. Wells, Henry James, Joseph Conrad, Ford Madox Ford, and Wyndham Lewis--whose experiments with life-writing forms are no less striking. The book concludes with a consideration of the afterlife of these fascinating experiments in the postmodern literature of Nabokov, Lessing, and Byatt." "Self Impression sheds light on a number of significant but under-theorized issues; the meanings of the term àutobiographical', the generic implications of literary autobiography, and the intriguing relation between autobiography and fiction in the period."--Jacket

The controversial British writer Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) is increasingly recognized as a major presence in early twentieth-century literature. This series of International Ford Madox Ford Studies was founded to reflect the recent resurgence of interest in him. Each volume is based upon a particular theme or issue; and relates aspects of Ford's work, life, and contacts, to broader concerns of his time. Ford is best-known for his fiction, especially The Good Soldier, long considered a modernist masterpiece; and Parade's End, which Anthony Burgess described as "the finest novel about the First World War", Samuel Hynes has called "the greatest war novel ever written by an Englishman", and which has been adapted by Tom Stoppard for the acclaimed BBC/HBO television series. This volume focuses on Ford's work from the Edwardian decade and a half before the First World War. It contains Michael Schmidt's Ford Madox Ford Lecture, and fourteen other essays by British, American, French and German experts, both leading authorities and younger scholars. Chapters on Ford's fiction, poetry, criticism of literature and painting, writing about England, and dealings on the Edwardian literary scene as editor and with publishers, bring out his versatility and ingenuity throughout his first major creative phase
