Sporting Lives: Metaphor and Myth in American Sports Autobiographies

Sporting Lives: Metaphor and Myth in American Sports Autobiographies by James W. Pipkin
English | Mar 31, 2008 | ISBN: 0826217796 | 175 Pages | PDF | 1,5 MB

Books about sports have ignored this dimension of the subject, particularly the athletes’ own autobiographical accounts. In Sporting Lives, the first book to examine the two popular realms of sports and autobiography, James Pipkin looks at recurring patterns found in athletes’ accounts of their lives and sporting experiences, examining language, metaphor, rhetorical strategies, and other elements to analyze sports from the inside out.
