Telling the Life Story, Anxiously: The Memoirs of Teresa and Anna Campbell Jürgen Schlaeger describes autobiography ("a discourse of anxiety") and biography ("a discourse of usurpation") as "distinctly different kinds of rhetorical constructions with different legitimizing strategies, grounds of authority, and points of view." Focusing on the memoirs of Teresa and Anna, daughters of the poet and writer, Roy Campbell (1901-1957) and his wife Mary (1898-1979), this essay examines the challenges arising when autobiography arbitrates biography. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Biography University of Hawai'I Press

Focusing on the memoirs of Teresa and Anna, daughters of the poet and writer, Roy Campbell (1901-1957) and his wife Mary (1898-1979), this essay examines the challenges arising when autobiography arbitrates biography.
