French Autobiography: Devices and Desires

Michael Sheringham

Memory gathers, preserves, and reintegrates significant experiences. This thus plays a key role in autobiographies, in that it becomes central to presenting one's personal identity. Memory answers the question of what the past is like and cultivates the realization of how the past really happened. This chapter discusses the status of memory in autobiographies.
