10 QUOTES WITH «AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word autobiographical.
1
Ian Anderson
There's always going to be a little bit of autobiographical content to everything. It's how you lend some authority to what you write - you give it that weight by drawing on your direct experiences and indirect experiences from people that you know well, or a little.
2
Dario Argento
In each of my characters there is a little of me. Not strictly autobiographical but a little piece of my soul.
3
Andrea Arnold
People ask, 'Are your things autobiographical?,' and I think, no, they're not autobiographical directly, but of course my life has informed my work.
4
Paul Auster
All through my writing life, I've had this impulse to write autobiographical works.
5
John Banville
All novels must be autobiographical because I am the only material that I know. All of the characters are me. But at the same time, a novel is never autobiographical even if it describes the life of the author. Literary writing is a completely different medium.
6
Pat Barker
That balance between involvement and detachment is what novelists do. It's the ideal relationship between a novelist and a character, I think, total involvement and identity and empathy, stopping short of being autobiographical - in my case, anyway - but also quite detached.
7
Donald Barthelme
There's not a strong autobiographical strain in my fiction. A few bits of fact here and there.
8
John Barton
Poets can't resist the dramatic pull of their lives and so inevitably write autobiographical verse.
9
Jim Beaver
Because of the wonderfully positive response to 'Life's That Way,' I am considering writing some more autobiographical stuff - maybe another book. I don't know. It doesn't help that I'm lazy.
10
Alison Bechdel
Autobiographical comics, I love them. I love them.
