My Favourite Biographies I Can Suggest You To Read If You Are A Biography Lover

Biographies are a detailed description of a person’s life, not only presenting the mere facts, rather it presents the person’s life experiences. For this reason, biographies are not boring, rather it is a very enjoyable source of literature.

Reminiscences, even extensive ones, do not always amount to an autobiography. For Autobiography has to do with time, with sequence and what makes up the continuous flow of life. Here, I am talking of a space, of moments and discontinuities. For even if months and years appear here, it is in the form they have in the moment of recollection. This strange form — it may be called fleeting or eternal — is in neither case the stuff that life is made of. –Walter Benjamin
