Sinopse

Frederick Douglass is one of the most celebrated writers in the African American literary tradition, and this, his first autobiography, is one of the most widely read North American slave narratives. It was first published in 1845 – less than seven years after Douglass escaped from slavery. Former slave, impassioned abolitionist, brilliant writer, newspaper editor and eloquent orator whose speeches fired the abolitionist cause; Frederick Douglass led an astounding life. Physical abuse, deprivation, and tragedy plagued his early years, yet through sheer force of character, he was able to overcome these obstacles to become a leading spokesman for his people. In this, the first and most frequently read of his three autobiographies, Douglass provides graphic descriptions of his childhood and horrifying experiences as a slave as well as a harrowing record of his dramatic escape to the North and eventual freedom. It truly is a unique look into slavery since few slaves during that period could write. The Narrative is admired today for its extraordinary passion, sensitive and vivid descriptions and storytelling power. Highlights of this edition are: 26 illustrations and photos.
