What is an Autobiography?

The Oxford English Dictionary defines autobiography as 

"An account of a person's life given by himself or herself, especially one published in book form. Also: the process of writing such an account; these considered as a
literary genre". 

An autobiographical essay is a short account of some aspect of the writer's life. It may include a brief description of the writer's experiences,hobbies,interests and some memorable events. Another term for an autobiographical essay is narrative essay. Since the autobiographical form is a first hand account of a person's life presented in its original form without interpretation or commentary from other writers, it is considered a primary source.

For additional information on this literary genre refer to Purdue's Online Writing Lab:
