Summary  For the literary critic, autobiographies of childhood are the most appealing. This is because they are obviously reliant on an act of imagination in the narration of memory; and the protagonist is concerned with himself or herself, and not with other people and their stories. As a question of degree this is true; however, it is not an absolute distinction. There are factors which determine autobiographies of childhood as being more than just eccentric or wholly individual.
