Abstrakt EN: This essay investigates the role of autobiography in the career of the current United States Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey and in particular in her book Beyond Katrina: A Meditation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast (2010), a multigenreic text—part poetry, part memoir, part photo album, part sociology, part local history, part disaster narrative.The essay argues that the “self” functions as an organizing principle in both poetry and life, and furthermore the essay pays special attention to acts of what Trethewey dubs“memorial” and“erasure,” the purposeful erection of monuments verses the willful burial of facts in order to control the narrative of a particular location, people, or history.
