Autobiography. The Bobbs-Merrill Series in Composition and Rhetoric.
Adams, Maurianne, Ed.
The 12 autobiographical selections in this publication were chosen to suggest the range, depth, and variety of personal experiences available through autobiography; to focus the student's attention upon his own personal experiences; and to raise artistic questions about the relationships between "inner" and "outer" experiences. The selections--poems, short stories, novel excerpts, and autobiography excerpts--are by Maxim Gorky, Vladimir Nabokov, Henry Adams, Richard Hoggart, James Baldwin, Dylan Thomas, James Joyce, E. A. Poe, E. E. Cummings, Jorge Luis Borges, and the anonymous author of "The Seafarer." (LH)
