Stories can be created either when an individual performs a dialogue with the self or when an individual creates and shares accounts of her life with others. In the latter case, stories provide a means through which others come to know us (Lieblich, Tuval-Mashiach, & Zilber, 1998). For Neimeyer, Herrero, and Botella (2006), the importance of creating and telling stories about our lives goes beyond the need to know ourselves and be known by others; the processes of storying also provide a way to bring a degree of coherence and meaning to life by linking dissimilar and unconnected events.

For example, the reality of the wars of Ancient Greece provided the documentary backdrop for the classical tragedies of Aeschylus’ Agamemnon (458 BCE), and even fanciful comedies such as Aristophanes’ political satire Lysistrata (411 BCE) were informed by historical events, in this case the Peloponnesian War.
