  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: I have what feels like a fairly reliable memory of reading James R. Mellow's Charmed Circle: Gertrude Stein and Company in my first year of college, but I can't recall what initially drew me to the book. Although it's likely I had heard of Stein by then in one of my introductory English classes, I'm certain I hadn't read any of her work, and I suspect it might only have been the sinuous art-deco typography on the cover of the 1982 Avon paperback edition that prompted me to buy it. Whatever it was that called out to me, I'm forever grateful for the appeal. I found Mellow's account of Stein's life and world as captivating as any novel, and it set me on an often baffling, always thrilling course of reading that stoked ... Read More

  • Why Obscure the Record': The Psychological Context of Willa Cather's
           Ban on Letter Publication
    • Abstract: In September 1930, while she was staying at an old hotel in Aix-les-Bains, France, American author Willa Cather chanced to meet Caroline Franklin Grout. The elderly French woman first impressed Cather with her personal dignity, the way she was "contemptuously intolerant of the limitations of old age," and after they met and talked, she impressed her even more (Cather, "Chance" 5). Madame Grout happened to be the beloved niece of Gustave Flaubert, one of Cather's favorite writers. Moreover, Cather knew something of Madame Grout from a book she had treasured: Flaubert's Lettres à sa Nièce Caroline. Flaubert's letters to his niece—published in 1906, twenty-six years after his death—stirred such emotion in Cather that ... Read More

  • "Strange Imagination": Valentine Greatrakes's Healing Aura and the
           Autobiographical Impulse
    • Abstract: About four years since I had an Impulse, or a strange perswasion in my own mind (of which I am not able to give any rational account to another) which did very frequently suggest to me that there was bestowed on me the gift of curing the Kings-Evil: which, for the extraordinariness of it, I thought fit to conceal for some time, but at length I communicated this to my Wife, and told her, That I did verily believe, that God had given me the blessing of curing the Kings-Evil; for whether I were in private or publick, sleeping or waking, still I had the same Impulse; but her reply was to me, That she conceived this was a strange imagination.Just as we shook hands, I felt my right arm shoot back over my shoulder and ...

  • Putting Lives on the Record: The Book as Material and Symbol in Life
           Writing
    • Abstract: In recent years, the study of life writing has become increasingly attentive to the role of the book in the production and circulation of life narratives. Gillian Whitlock's important work on the movement of life writing across national borders in the "war on terror" (Soft Weapons), Julie Rak's analysis of the rise of memoir as a best-selling genre in America (Boom!), and Kate Douglas's careful consideration of the production and sale of memoirs of childhood (Contesting Childhood) all situate the book as a contemporary media form that has specific affordances, practices of circulation, and modes of preservation that shape life writing. These studies of contemporary life writing are attentive to the placement of ... Read More

  • On the Lecture Circuit with Gertrude Stein's Portraits
    • Abstract: Now everybody at any moment can know what it is that happens while it happens.Louis Mayer, cofounder of the movie studio Metro Goldwyn-Mayer, was often fond of saying, "the public makes the stars" (Schatz 42). To be sure, there is truth in this statement. As Laura Mulvey indicates, cinema itself is built on a kind of narcissistic scopophilia, the audiences' desire both to watch and to (mis)recognize themselves in the glamour of the screen (8–10). The successful celebrity is one who instills in the audience a marketable form of voyeurism: the public must want them and their lives as much as the work they produce. Thus while film introduced a celebrity's façade to the viewer, the early twentieth century also saw a ... Read More

  • Nostalgia and Auto/Biography: Considering the Past in the Present by
           Hilary Dickinson and Michael Erben (review)
    • Abstract: In Nostalgia and Auto/Biography: Considering the Past in the Present, Hilary Dickinson and Michael Erben explore the rich concept of nostalgia with a particular focus on the role of nostalgia in the construction of the autobiographical self. From the backdrop of nostalgia's medical roots (for example, nostalgia as disease), Dickinson and Erben delineate the changing conceptions of the term over time, especially highlighting the psychoanalytic and sociological approaches to nostalgia.The authors stress that nostalgia is a "secondary" (rather than "primary") emotion. As such, nostalgia is not identified as a basic, innate emotion in the same way that, for instance, fear and anger typically are. The categorizing of ... Read More

  • In Haste with Aloha: Letters and Diaries of Queen Emma 1881–1885 ed. by
           David W. Forbes (review)
    • Abstract: Hawai'i historian David W. Forbes has once again produced a book of interest and importance, this time centering on Dowager Queen Emma's writings from 1881–1885, the last five years of her life, starting eighteen years after the death of her husband, King Kamehameha IV. One may think Queen Emma played no part in Hawai'i's history other than founding—with her husband—what is today the Queen's Medical Center and the (Anglican) Cathedral of St. Andrew, but her daily life shows a woman of many abilities and accomplishments. A well-educated and worldly woman of privilege with several homes and numerous servants, she nevertheless willingly "pitched in" when needed, and also enjoyed a good gossip.The book title refers to ...

  • Diaries by Eva Hesse (review)
    • Abstract: When a brain tumor ended her life in 1970, the artist Eva Hesse was just thirty-four years old. But, as this book's promotional materials state, Hesse was (and remains) one of the greatest American artists of the 1960s, on par with the other artists these diaries name as part of her social and professional circle, including Dan Graham, Sol Lewitt, Mel Bochner, and Robert Smithson (who also died young, in a plane crash). This contrast between her life's fleetingness and her reputation's durability mirrors the disparity between her art's ephemerality and this book's sturdiness. Works like her well-known Hang Up (1966)—a wall piece comprising steel tube, cord, cloth, and wood that pokes fun at the solipsism of many ... Read More

  • Love Among the Archives: Writing the Lives of Sir George Scharf, Victorian
           Bachelor by Helena Michie and Robyn Warhol (review)
    • Abstract: On a bad day, for Victorianists Helena Michie and Robyn Warhol, he is "the most boring man in the world" (6). For the rest of us—a group that may include scholars of Victorian literature and culture, historians, art critics, archivists, and avid readers of biography and biographical metafiction—he is the first director of London's National Portrait Gallery (NPG). Does this titled position, which led to Scharf being appointed a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, differentiating him from his father George Scharf, the German immigrant artist whose vocation the NPG website lists as "miniature painter, draughtsman and lithographer," make Sir George any less boring' Possibly. Although the ... Read More

  • Self as Nation: Contemporary Hebrew Autobiography by Tamar S. Hess
           (review)
    • Abstract: To those of us interested in the lives of others, Hebrew autobiographies, whether written before or after the establishment of the State of Israel, have often been disappointing because so many of these texts have been rooted, as Tamar Hess rightly notes, in collective national life. In her introduction to Self as Nation, Hess shows how Hebrew autobiography since the mid-nineteenth century has followed the path familiar to other national literatures in which the individual self has been subjected to the national narrative. The autobiographer may celebrate the Jews' settlement in a new home or express disillusionment with the Zionist project, but that project overwhelms all dimensions of life, especially in men's ...

  • Postcolonial Life Narratives: Testimonial Transactions by Gillian Whitlock
           (review)
    • Abstract: Gillian Whitlock's Postcolonial Life Narratives: Testimonial Transactions in the Oxford Studies in Postcolonial Literatures series brings together two approaches to literary studies that have met different fates over the last decade. Interest in all forms of life writing has grown, especially in a present global politics in which issues of referentiality, "fake news," and truth-telling become ever more urgently debated. Postcolonial studies as a conceptual framework has, in contrast, waned, and been partially eclipsed by a growing if parallel focus on world literature and translation studies.Given these developments, and indeed the potential limitlessness of post-colonial life writing as a topic, Whitlock makes a ...
