Autobiography, memory, and self-fiction in contemporary Latin American narrative and poetry
Description: This investigation thinks about the different strategies of representation and inclusion of the Self in a set of texts by Hispanic American writers published between the 1990s and the present day, sometimes being included in what is called ‘self-writing’ or ‘intimate writing’ (memories, essays, and self-fictional narratives), sometimes allowing a specific question concerning the relationship between poetry and autobiographical memory.
