Autobiography and Independence
Liverpool University Press

This chapter first traces the development of autobiography in the Western literary tradition in order to contextualise more fully the issue of writers whose origins lie outside this tradition, or who at least occupy, more or less uncomfortably, a space between two or more cultures. It then turns to the question of the effects of French colonialism.

Keywords:   autobiography, Western literary tradition, French colonialism
