We will explore the differences and similarities in which reminiscences are triggered in Woolf and Auster’s writings, and how each one of these authors deconstructs those memories in order to take perspective and make contact with the past. In Woolf’s Moments of Being we will analyze the literary tools used by the compiler to create the book’s configuration, while in Auster’s The Invention of Solitude we will examine the way he uses fragmentation to bring together various aspects of his own memory.
