Abstract

If we are to believe, as Emily Dickinson tells us, that we are often harder on ourselves than others could ever be, then Hawthorne in his condemnatory fictionalized portrait of Margaret Fuller in The Blithedale Romance or the modern day "celebiographer" of the rich and famous must surely have a strict standard for their own behavior given the severity with which they judge the social and personal mores of their contemporaries. Yet whether it be the reminiscence of a senior citizen or the scholarship of a feminist writer, the works in this year's bibliography reflect that the "truth" is as subjective as the perceiver of it.
