This paper argues the relevance of narratological concepts developed in literary analysis for the study and representation of personal life experience and narrative psychology. The findings of narrative psychology give new insights into the hermeneutic feedback between life and literature, or life and narrative. Several varieties and dimensions of personal life stories are sketched, and the importance of narrative anchoring, as well as of transformations, crises and turning points, is emphasized.
