"The Best Years of Your Life": Remembering Childhood in Autobiographical Texts.
White, Naomi Rosh
Children & Society, v12 n1 p48-59 Feb 1998
Explores aspects of autobiographical accounts of childhood. Considers Freudian explanations of how recollections of childhood are bound by memory; then describes the distinctive form of definitions of oneself-as-child and relates them to post-modern theories about the self. Discusses ways in which recollections of childhood are framed by the subordinate position of children in family and society. (EV)
