Gibbs, Graham R. (2014) Analyzing Biographies and Narratives. In: Documentary & Archival Research. SAGE Benchmarks in Social Research Methods . Sage, London, UK. ISBN 9781446210949

This chapter examines what the analysis of narratives, stories and biographies has added to qualitative research and looks at the sources and functions of narratives. It examines the particular content and themes of life histories or biographies. These general features are put into context for analysis by a set of practical approaches to analysis and by examination of an example narrative. The chapter ends with a discussion of the structure of narratives.
