Abstract or Description

“All that the world has impressed upon her and her contemporaries she will use to reconstitute a common time… By retrieving the memory of collective memory in an individual memory, she will capture the lived dimension of History... There is no ‘I’ in what she views as a sort of impersonal autobiography. There is only ‘one’ and ‘we’…”
