History and Theory of Autobiography: Introduction v Faculty of Arts, room P319
Říj 3 @ 17:30 – 19:00
History and Theory of Autobiography: Introduction @ Faculty of Arts, room P319

Lecturer: Klára Soukupová (Prague).

Annotation:

The genre of autobiography is often situated on borderline between fiction and non-fiction; autobiography refers to real characters and events, but at the same time it is a literary work of art, a verbal construct. The lecture concentrates on major problems of the genre of autobiography (truth, memory, subjectivity) as well as on history of autobiography (canonical texts) and it goes through development of theory of autobiography in 20th century.

The lecture is a part of the series Me and the World … Autobiography in Medieval and Early Modern Europe.

The Haunted: Writing the Self on the Edge. Icelandic Autobiographies in the Early Modern Age @ Faculty of Arts, room P319

Lecturer: Jürg Glauser (Zürich).

Annotation:

Icelandic literary culture of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries still bears many traces of the medieval tradition. This is also the case when it comes to representations of self-conceptions as expressed in early modern autobiographies. The present paper deals primarily with two representative examples of the genre,

1) the priest Jón Magnússon’s (1610-96) Píslarsaga (1658-59, ‘Story of Sufferings’(English translation by Michael Fell as And Though This World with Devils filled. A Story of Sufferings, 2007)

2) Sjálfsævisaga (1750ff., ‘Autobiography’) by the priest síra Þorsteinn Pétursson á Staðarbakka (1710-85) Beyond being quite remarkable representations of autobiographies in general, the two texts display a number of features that are specific for this genre in the pre-modern era, such as the creations of individual selves in relation to God and society, the importance of Christian faith, belief, religion and theology, the vital role mental and physical health plays in the narratives. In Píslarsaga, an additional element that defines the text in a very specific manner are the descriptions of the prosecution of putative sorcerers in seventeenth century Iceland.

The Hero: Imagining the Viking Life: (Pseudo)Autobiographical poetry in the Old Norse Legendary Sagas v Faculty of Arts, room P319

The Hero: Imagining the Viking Life: (Pseudo)Autobiographical poetry in the Old Norse Legendary Sagas @ Faculty of Arts, room P319

Lecturer: Carolyne Larrington (Oxford).

Annotation:

This lecture will talk about some of the ways in which the poetic form of ‚ævidrápur‘ (deeds of a life) functions within the fornaldarsaga genre in Old Norse. These autobiographically styled poems look back over and reflect a little on the lives of the Viking ancestors of medieval Scandinavians. Some may indeed draw on ancient traditions, others be antiquarian re-imaginings, but their focus on violence, loss, regret – and even love – allows us draw parallels with other kinds of autobiographical composition.

The Self-Harmer: (Auto-)Biography and Self-Flagellation: Henry Suso's Vita as a Guide to Finding One's Own Cross @ Faculty of Arts, room P319

Lecturer: Jan Hon (Berkeley).

Annotation:

Henry Suso’s Vita narrates the life of a „Servant of Eternal Wisdom“ as a path from the state of sin to the state of „Gelassenheit“ (composure/serenity/“let-it-be-ness“) and unity with God. What makes this text unique even in the context of late medieval mysticism is its autobiographical impetus. Though narrated in the third person, the text uses a number of strategies to link the narrative to the historical figure of Henry Suso. That, in turn, makes the hagiographical tone of the account a notably risky endeavor: how can one authorize his own life, filled with self-induced suffering, as an imitatio Christi and, at the same time, present it as an example to be followed by others? The talk will discuss this tension between hagio-graphy and auto-bio-graphy along with the medial strategies in both the manuscript and the print transmissions employed to provide the audience with spiritual participation in the servant’s (self-)torturous way to God.

The lecture is a part of the series Me and the World … Autobiography in Medieval and Early Modern Europe.
