Life-writers intervened in and helped to shape contemporaneous debates about the meaning and constitution of selfhood; they posed questions about the nature of individualism and individuality; they explored the cultural uses of publicity, privacy, intimacy and sociability; they investigated the production and commodification of identity; they sometimes even experimented with ideas of an embodied self. Focussing mainly on autobiographical rather than biographical writing, and offering Harriet Martineau{\textquoteright}s practice as a case study, this essay first outlines early approaches to the genre, before identifying some recent critical currents.
