Abstract

The intent of this research is to identify the ways in which Virginia Woolf's Moments of Being and Christa Wolf's A Model Childhood contribute to the development of a method in process for writing feminist autobiographical texts. The analysis of how Virginia and Christa provide critique of dominant autobiographical practices and feminist critique of authoritative cultural discourses aids in determining strategies that could be taken together and used in a feminist autobiographical practice. The theoretical approach taken in the analysis of Moments of Being and A Model Childhood combines feminist autobiographical criticism, postmodern theory, and Bakhtinian dialogical theory.
