Biography

Description:
A study of how biographies tell a life story, with attention to the problems of fidelity to the truth and appeal to the imagination. Selected texts share common themes which are approached differently, sometimes in several works about a single historical figure. Consideration is given to uses of differing source materials and to differing forms, including prose, drama, documentary, and fictionalized film.
