KAPOR'`S CONFESSIONS BETWEEN METAFICTION, FICTION AND AUTOBIOGRAPHY

  • Suzana R. Bunčić

Abstract

Multiplicity of meanings of Kapor's novel Confessions (2008), suggested by the title, as well as by the subtitle "autobiographical novel", places this work on the slippery line between the story of one's own life, fiction and memoir, opening questions about the genre and discourse polymorphism of this reading. Contemporary theories determine autobiography mainly as a narrative prose genre of confessional character, whose goal is to show one`s own life or the development of one's own personality. In the search for a more precise genre definition of Confessions this paper will analyze the types of prose discourse in an effort to determine the place and function of the autobiographical discourse in relation to the historiographic, memoir, fictional, and metafictional narrative.
