Summary
"Autobiographical Inscriptions contributes a theory of autobiography by women writers of color to this lively repositioning of auto-biography studies. Barbara Rodriguez breaks new ground in the field with a discussion of the ways in which innovations of form and structure bolster the arguments for personhood articulated by Harriet Jacobs, Zora Neale Hurston, Hisaye Yamamoto, Maxine Hong Kingston, Leslie Marmon Silko, Adrienne Kennedy, and Cecile Pineda."--BOOK JACKET
