Narrating the Self in Early Modern Europe, eds. Bruno Tribout and Ruth Whelan

Bruno Tribout (Editor), Ruth Whelan (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

    Abstract

    What does it mean to narrate the self? Is there a 'self' to be narrated? What form should such narratives or writings take? The authors of the sixteen essays collected in this volume use a variety of approaches to study a broad range of what are now called 'ego-documents' from the Renaissance to the beginning of the nineteenth century. From them it emerges that 'the self' is not an acknowledged fact, but rather a historical process, which is neither linear nor stable.
