Abstract:

TRIALS OF FORM: TWO ESSAYS ON VARIOUS SELVES: I. Letters from Ruth: Since the 1950s, my grandmother's children have been scattered across the nation from the family farm in Iowa. My family came to Oregon in the early '60s. Since then, my grandmother has kept track of all her children and grandchildren and helped them keep track of each other. In this essay, I examine how my grandmother creates a sense of continuity among the family through her scrapbooks and letters. II. The Walking Circle: In the late '70s, I was a teenager in Bend, Oregon, dreaming of becoming a great writer. I walked around Bend late at night and filled many notebooks with my aspirations. In this essay, I look back into those notebooks from the perspective of a summer job I had ten years later.
