Paper 1 – Autobiographical Writings
Autobiography is the narrative of self. It crystallizes collective self-reflective moments of a great soul. Yet, autobiographical writings are as much an engagement with the self as with history itself. Therefore, they are the legacies left behind by great men and women. The purpose of this paper is to acquaint students with the autobiographical discourses of great minds and noble hearts which negotiate the space between self and history.
