Women's Autobiography provides a vivid sense of how women writers have attempted to encompass key events of the twentieth century in their life stories. Focusing on how recent theories about trauma can shed light on autobiographical writing, Victoria Stewart examines works by Vera Brittain, Virginia Woolf, Anne Frank, Charlotte Delbo, Lisa Appignanesi, Anne Karpf and Eva Hoffman. Each of these writers deals with the impact of war, either on herself directly or on her family. This new study identifies the narrative techniques developed to deal with these events and their aftermath. Of particular interest to those concerned with First World War writing and representations of the Holocaust, Women's Autobiography presents both familiar and less-familiar examples of life-writing in a new light.
