This paper explores the question of autobiographical discourse in the work "Аutobiography" by Marko Cepenkov. Firstly, we will determine the basic theoretical settings according to which a text can be said to be autobiographical or it contains autobiographical elements. Then, we will specifically indicate the presence of the explicit and implicit techniques or elements in certain works that are used by the author in addition to which his work can be called an "autobiographical text". Even though his theoretical model will be used, in the same time the inconsistencies in this model will be indicated as well as its modification in the literary works of autobiographical discourse. In that context, the "Autobiography" by Marko Cepenkov will be reviewed, in which, joining the private and the socially-public, depicted through the whole relevant Balkan situation in that time, he created a specific autobiographical – biographical discourse of memoirs. In that manner, the uncertain theoretical status of autobiography will be confirmed, the previous definition of autobiography as "dogmatic" will be unmasked and a notion that autobiography cannot be seen isolated from the other genres will be created, i.e. the existence of hybrid genres will be confirmed.
