Small lexicon of terms:
A biography, also biography (Greek βιογραφία , from βίος , bIos "life" and -graphie from γράφω , graphō "to carve, paint, write") is the description of a person’s life. The biography is the oral or written presentation of the life of another person; a special case of the biography is the autobiography: it is written by the person himself (today, however, often with the assistance of a ghostwriter) about his own life experiences. In the family circle autobiographies are sometimes attached to the will. There should remain a trace of life – the descendants should know what was.
What does it mean to have an autobiography (autobiography) written??
An autobiography (altgr. αὐτός autos ‘self’, βίος bIos ‘life’ and -graphy) is the description of one’s life story or sections of it from a retrospective perspective (as opposed to, say, a diary). What makes this literary form special is the identity between author and narrator and protagonist. Despite its explicitly subjective perspective, autobiography has a greater claim to objectivity than does the autobiographical novel. Memoirs, which are related to autobiography, place a special emphasis on the depiction of events in contemporary history. Its borderline nature between history and literature puts autobiography in a marginal literary position. However, it is also used to fundamentally redefine core areas of literary studies (for example, by Paul de Man).
What does it mean to have your memoirs written??
The expression memoirs (plural noun; v. franz. memoire "written statement, memorandum" from lat. memoria "memory") refers to memorabilia or records of self-experienced events.
In distinction to autobiography, the memoirist places his social role at the center of the account (z. B. politicians and other officials). If the autobiography describes the career of the not yet socialized person, memoirs assume the consolidated identity of an individual who is aware of his social role. In doing so, the memoirist places the story of his coming into being behind that of the representation of his time and his work in it.
Due to their subjective nature, memoirs should only be used with caution as a source. Since they are usually written down a long time after the events depicted, errors or at least unconscious deviations from reality are easily possible. Also conscious misrepresentations of the author to justify one’s own actions or to exonerate oneself in case of misconduct occur, a well-known example from recent times are the memoirs of Albert Speer in which he claimed not to have known anything about the Holocaust and forced labor, although other sources show that he was very well informed at least about essential aspects. In German, memoirs are usually referred to as Erinnerungen (memories).
