"A biography, or simply bio, is a detailed description of a person´s life. It involves more than just the basic facts like education, work, relationships, and death; it portrays a person´s experience of these life events. Unlike a profile or curriculum vitae (résumé), a biography presents a subject´s life story, highlighting various aspects of his or her life, including intimate details of experience, and may include an analysis of the subject´s personality.

Biographical works are usually non-fiction, but fiction can also be used to portray a person´s life. One in-depth form of biographical coverage is called legacy writing. Works in diverse media, from literature to film, form the genre known as biography." - ( 23.09.2019)
