 About the Book 

What does it mean to narrate the self? Is there a self to be narrated? What form should such narratives or writings take? The authors of the sixteen essays collected in this volume use a variety of approaches to study a broad range of what are now called ego-documents from the Renaissance to the beginning of the nineteenth century. From them it emerges that the self is not an acknowledged fact, but rather a historical process, which is neither linear nor stable.
