Biography and Source Studiesby Frederick R. Karl (Editor)
Eight essays focus on the ways that a biography comes into being: a professional biographer seeking a subject; setting the record straight on a person the biographer knows or knows a lot about; and stumbling into a biography while researching a larger theme. Practitioners and researchers explore such topics as going underground to research Lewis Carroll, becoming Rebecca West's authorized biographer, biography and art history, and the bloated industry of Dickens biography.
