Autobiography is one of the most popular of written forms. From Casanova to Benjamin Franklin to the Kardashians, individuals throughout history have recorded their own lives and experiences. These personal writings are central to the work of literary critics, philosophers, historians and psychologists, who have found in autobiographies from across the centuries not only an understanding of the ways in which lives have been lived, but the most fundamental accounts of what it means to be a self in the world. In this Very Short Introduction Laura Marcus defines what we mean by 'autobiography', and considers its relationship with similar literary forms such as memoirs, journals, letters, diaries, and essays. Analysing the core themes in autobiographical writing, such as confession, conversion and testimony; romanticism and the journeying self; Marcus discusses the autobiographical consciousness (and the roles played by time, memory and identity), and considers the relationship between psychoanalysis and autobiography. Exploring the themes of self-portraiture and performance, Marcus also discusses the ways in which fiction and autobiography have shaped each other. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

About The Book -It is hard to beat a person who never gives up! - Babe Ruth -Autobiography - An Account of a person's life and as written by that person! This is my 33rd book - and after 6 books on Arab Management, 3 on Road Safety, 2 prior of this on My Autobiography (The Story of My Life!) - 12 on my Columns Writings 'Between Us Only!' and 'At My Workplace!' and the rest on assorted topics! The book is a bird's eye view all about me from my all varied articles to date! If one wants to write my Obituary then there is no place to start than from this book - but not forgetting reading the other books as well! I apologise in advance - as I do feel I may have missed out in some articles. But writing my Bibliography, this book will go 90% in doing the work! The articles produced here are in main part linked to me as Majid aka as Magic - Magic Man as the pseudonym I used in 'The Forums'! Also interestingly the article - Why Do They Call You Magic? Also Who Is Majid? And My Epitaph! The articles are also about My Family and My Late Parents - Peace Be Upon Them! There are several bits and pieces spread out in my other 28 books where they could also come here - but then the book will be very big in size and in contents! I hope you will like reading about me! People were always asking me - Why don't you write a book about yourself? The story of your life? I then decided to accept the challenge and write this book. Like the other books - I have tried to be as factual as possible - and with my usual style of writing of speaking to you directly from my heart - and to be as sincere, genuine, frank, forthright as possible - so that this book can not only be used in Research works - but as a Guide and Beacon for the children, grandchildren, great grandchildren - and future generations by the Grace of Allah God - Ameen Amen.

“An insightful memoir that uncovers unique stories about matters of the heart.” —Essence The inspiring New York Times bestseller from Common—the Grammy Award, Academy Award, and Golden Globe–winning musician, actor, and activist—explores how love and mindfulness can build communities and allow you to take better control of your life through actions and words. Common believes that the phrase “let love have the last word” is not just a declaration; it is a statement of purpose, a daily promise. Love is the most powerful force on the planet, and ultimately the way you love determines who you are and how you experience life. Touching on God, self-love, partners, children, family, and community, Common explores the core tenets of love to help us understand what it means to receive and, most importantly, to give love. He moves from the personal—writing about his daughter, to whom he wants to be a better father—to the universal, where he observes that our society has become fractured under issues of race and politics. He knows there’s no quick remedy for all of the hurt in the world, but love—for yourself and for others—is where the healing begins. In his first public reveal, Common also shares a deeply personal experience of childhood molestation that he is now confronting…and forgiving. Courageous, insightful, brave, and characteristically authentic, Let Love Have the Last Word shares Common’s own unique and personal stories of the people and experiences that have led to a greater understanding of love and all it has to offer. It is a powerful call to action for a new generation of open hearts and minds, one that is sure to resonate for years to come.
