But we don’t live stories. While writing autobiographical texts we are
relying on the vantage point of the present. So no wonder that there
might be something blatantly fictional about the tales we recount about
the past. We are remembering selectively. We tend to keep in mind only
good things about ourselves – the impression we made when entering the
party room all dressed up in frenzii denim leggings, our brilliant
retorts, ready wit, and other achievements. Recollections are
subject to distortions and falsifications. Telling of a life history is
not simply recollecting experience as it was. The outcome is an
imaginative – or even imaginary – story we tell. There is an endless
debate about the definition of autobiography and the boundaries of fact
and fiction. It reflects a fundamental uncertainty about the relation
between autobiographical narrative and the life it is supposed to
record.It is sometimes impossible to separate the factual
content of autobiography from its narrative matrix. Autobiographies are
quite often indistinguishable from novels. The authors themselves
perform as artists and historians at the same time mixing fact with
fiction and reality with imagination. Their lapses from fidelity to
autobiographical truth into the manipulations of fiction generate
literary constructions of what they have been or are, conferring
interpretations on experience that did not posses those meanings at the
time of occurrence.Therefore autobiographical texts, in so far
as they aim toward an enlarged understanding of the past by ‘revising’
and ‘correcting’ it, cannot be judged by either precision of their
detail or correspondence to what was. So it is no longer the basis in
fact that separates autobiography from narrative fiction. The author’s
intention has become a decisive criterion in the identification of a
given text as an autobiography. The decision of an author to
adopt an autobiographical viewpoint corresponds to the reasons for the
invention of autobiography. What motivates any individual to the work
of self-construction is to affirm the existence of the self as the
initiating cause, to take on the role of a creative maker. It is also
most human to reflect comprehensively on the past, and impose order and
coherence upon it. The act of existing meaningfully in time and making
sense of ourselves and others is only possible through the fabric of
narrative.When considering autobiographical texts, texts for
which the interpreter is at once reader and writer, subject and object,
it becomes quite clear that the meanings we arrive at are in some sense
as much made as found. The process of autobiographical reflection is
fundamentally metaphorical one – a new relationship is being created
between the past and present, a new creative configuration, designed to
give greater form to one’s previous and present experience. Nowadays
the autobiographical act is a mode of self-invention always practiced
first in living and only eventually, and occasionally, in writing. The
modern art of self-construction inevitably leaves the self at the
center of all autobiography to some extent fictive. Fictions and
fiction-making process have become a central constituent of the truth
of any life as it is lived and of any art devoted to the presentation
of that life. Autobiography in our time is increasingly understood as
both an art of memory and an art of imagination where the materials of
the past are shaped by memory and imagination to serve the needs of
present consciousness.
