As Scarbrough puts it in an interview late in the book, "Biographically, it was rough.
To the extent that one reads his reassessment of the novel's ending biographically, the two additional lines might be interpreted as Walker acknowledging his mortality and accepting it.
The obvious drawback to Knapp's approach is that he interprets moments in the plays biographically. In many cases, Knapp's claims turn on the assumption that Shakespeare's characters voice their author's own attitudes towards his craft-claims that are sometimes plausible and potentially illuminating, but not shored up by external evidence that could be independently verified.
Biographically speaking, these parallel situations are united by Pushkin's actual acquaintance (and infatuation) with Sofia Potocka and her story of the unfortunate Maria Potocka, a member of the same clan, which she addresses to Pushkin, as well as by Pushkin's trip to Bakhchisarai and his composition of the narrative poem The Fountain of Bakhchisarai.
Biographically, as Zdzislaw Najder notes, these satirical comments on colonial snobbery sound like Conrad taking "emotional revenge" on the old French family whose daughter (Eugenie Renouf) he unsuccessfully wooed in 1888 (Najder, 111).
The sketchy islands, all squiggled intimations of water and oval coconuts, sitting atop geometric grounds of blurry neon, might be read biographically (Boninsegni was born in Korea and raised in Switzerland), as well as art-historically as a palimpsest of image culture in the Internet age.

Already in Candler's essay we note increasing attention to the Christian underpinnings of Tolkien's thought, and this becomes dominant in the four essays in Part 3, "Mythos and Logos." That the preferred term frequently is "Catholic" rather than "Christian" (though biographically it is accurate enough) seems to me a trifle tendentious given the essential catholicity (small c) of many aspects of his worldview.
Recognition of this integration is now a commonplace in Smith studies, but it has yet to be treated biographically. The result is certainly appealing, and forms an unusually concise and comprehensive picture of Smith's 'Science of Man'.
The images and their presentation are explored in terms of how scenes were organized, biographically or chronologically, how meaning is achieved by repetition, symbolic objects, juxtaposition, and typology and why specific scenes may refer to events associated with the life of the patron; this is similarly argued (143) for the Psalter of Queen Ingeborg (Chantilly, Mus.
Contextual essays place the actors biographically and aesthetically, and Maher has heavily laced them with extended quotations from her interviews and other sources.
Each author is outlined both biographically and bibliographically and also located contextually.
