Stelzig offers the first comparative study of these foundational figures. Although the term Romantic autobiography has been in use for some years, there has been no developed critical or generic discussion of it, nor of Rousseau\'s, Goethe\'s, and Wordsworth\'s writings as the leading examples of the genre. Stelzig provides an overview of how these authors fashioned a distinctive type of self-writing at the historical moment when modern autobiography emerged in its identifiable form.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
