Title

The Narrative of Self: Questioning the Authenticity of Self-praise or Self-criticism in Autobiographies.

Abstract

As a literary form of literature, autobiography has indeed become a popular genre amongst the common and critical readers for various reasons. The basic purpose of reading any prose form of literature is to view life and aspects of life in the story form. The stories elevate the reader’s attention towards life and aspects of living. Autobiography satisfies the legitimate curiosity of the reader. While attempting an autobiography, psychological and cognitive faculty comes into play such as memory. Psychological memory is the process in which information is programmed, deposited, and retrieved. While attempting an autobiography, psychological and cognitive faculty comes into play such as memory. Psychological memory is the process in which information is programmed, deposited, and retrieved. Encoding allows information from the outside world to reach the five senses in the forms of chemical and physical stimuli. The conscious and subconscious past which is recollected in the present memory is rooted through and shaped by present consciousness. The ‘past’ was unconscious about the future which is now a ‘present’ and is ready for the presentation of the self in the present form and conditions Autobiography is expected to sure the truth and nothing else. The reader naturally expects factual things in autobiography because the writing is expressed to share the “truth” of the narrator and his life. The title ‘autobiography’ over a particular book makes the correspondence with the reader about truthfulness of the story and real characters. The realization of the standpoint is paramount in ‘autobiography’. The coherence that the writer takes a standpoint from where he looks back into his own history or past is the most crucial. The stand point may be the actual social position of the story, his realization of the success or achievement in life which becomes a focal point and compels him to unite the whole story into a unified whole. Narrator faces various problems while voicing out their own stories because it’s going into society and would be evaluated from various angles. It puts author as omniscient in deciding the meaning of the text which is severely opposed by the post-modern critics.
