Abstract

Devotion questions prevailing views and assumptions concerning the efficacy of ‘writing the self’ by illuminating a complex and shifting interplay of seduction and resistance in confessional discourse, the power of delusion, motives of evasion and self-preservation, as well as problems of privacy and its invasion, voyeurism and its technologies, and gender dynamics in medicine. It also contributes original representations of female friendship, parenting, postnatal depression, suicide, disability and suburban family life.
