Writing as Action
- Author: H. Porter Abbott
H. Porter Abbott explores the role of the personal diary and its use as a literary strategy in a number of representative works in fiction. He asserts that the device of the diary can give a work a unique literary reflexivity: the diary not only tells the tale but directly influences its development. This book serves as a guide to the field of diary fiction and at the same time sheds new light on issues central to the study of narrative and autobiography.
