Abstract(s)
The paper examines a three-volume autobiography (To the Is-Land, An Angel at My Table, and The Envoy from Mirror City) by Janet Frame, focusing on its portrayal of the self-construction of the protagonist. Using a narrative psychological conception of the self (esp. by Dan McAdams) and constructivist theories of autobiographical practices (e.g. Bruner, Eakin), the paper demonstrates the ways in which the depicted search for personal identity in autobiography by Frame interplays with the narrative strategies of the text, and relates this identity search to the cultural determination of self-construction and models of identity available in the given society.
