CRW 209 - Personal Narrative


Which is more trustworthy: biography or autobiography? Aside from the hard facts of time and place of birth, how the story of a life takes shape has as much to do with the author–what he/she chooses to include or bypass–as it does with the truth of the subjects life. In this course, students will interrogate the authorial presentation of subject as they learn to examine the complicated relationships of narrators and readers. Students will write a series of essays that range from short sketches to longer biographies and develop a journal of personal narrative and self-expression that will culminate in a 5- page autobiography.
