Descrizione prodotto


Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) was an American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman. After escaping from slavery, he became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining renown for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writing. He stood as a living counter-example to slaveholders' arguments that slaves did not have the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens. He became a major speaker for the cause of abolition. In addition to his oratory, Douglass wrote several autobiographies, eloquently describing his life as a slave, and his struggles to be free. His classic autobiography, Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, is one of the best known accounts of American slavery. After the Civil War, Douglass remained very active in America's struggle to reach its potential as a "land of the free". Douglass actively supported women's suffrage. Following the war, he worked on behalf of equal rights for freedmen, and held multiple public offices. Douglass was a firm believer in the equality of all people, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant. He was fond of saying, "I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong."

5.0 su 5 stelle This is the edition to buy 21 novembre 2014
Di Timothy E. Bigler - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is the edition close to the original. Be careful as many other editions are out with additional opinions by modern "interpreters". This book, from the original author, needs no added opinions or editorials.

5.0 su 5 stelle for they allow us to gain a better understanding of how far our society has come 12 luglio 2016
Di Jayah - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This autobiography was assigned to me when I was a junior in high school. Three years later, as a sophomore in college, I was asked to read the book again for my class on Black Thought and Literature. I wish that I had taken the time to slow down and analyze Frederick Douglass' narrative from a literal, analytical, and figurative perspective. Had I done that the first time around—as opposed to treating the book as another required reading that I needed to speed-read through—I believe that my understanding would have been more in-depth and meaningful. The emotion and conviction with which the author writes is not only poetic and moving, but captivating as well. The imagery, combined with Douglass' views on religion's role in the enslavement of black bodies, masterfully paints a story that (in combination with other narratives) has, unfortunately, been lost throughout time. In fact, many Black writers during this period refused to publish their experiences for fear that they will be caught and returned to slavery. In other cases, some writers used pen names to add some anonymity to their experiences. Nevertheless, such works should be cherished and valued; for they allow us to gain a better understanding of how far our society has come, and how much more needs to be done to ensure a future where everyone is equal (in the truest sense of the word).

1.0 su 5 stelle Dover Thrift Edition copy is incorrect and incomplete. 3 maggio 2016
Di Sharpie - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The copy "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl version by Dover Thrift Editions" is incorrect. The back cover says she hid in her grandma's porch for seven years HOWEVER she actually hid in the shed behind her grandmother's house for seven years. Her uncle built a ceiling high up in the shed specifically for her. It was a very small area so nobody would notice, he also left his hammer and nails up there because he didn't feel like trying to squeeze his body up there to reach for it. Then when Harriet lived up there for seven years, she actually used the hammer and nailed a small hole so she could peek out and watch her kids playing in the backyard, without anyone, including them, noticing. THE PROPER VERSION BOOK TO BUY IS "Incidents Inthe Life of a Slave Girl written By Herself (originally Published in 1861)" Edited by: Jean Fagan Yellin, Paperback – 1987, 309 Pages, Publisher: Harvard U. Press, which includes handwritten letters by Jacobs, photos, timelines, and also maps including the shed where she resigned for seven years. That copy gets 5 stars. The Dover Thrift Edition gets 1 star. I originally had this book and gave it to a friend and figured I would just replace the copy, but bought the Dover Thrift Edition copy - which I did not know was not proper until I received it in the mail. Her story is great, her handwriting is much better than mine, her English is more intelligent than anyone who learns from the public school system today, even though she was a slave, she taught herself well much better than how people write and speak today. This is a great book if you buy the proper copy. The Dover Thrift Edition copy is incomplete and incorrect as stated above. I won't buy books they publish anymore. Doesn't anyone read anymore before publishing a book? Do Harriet proud and buy the correct copy. Thank you very much.

Di Erica Gilkey - Pubblicato su

Good read. It took me a little less than 2 weeks to read this book. I only read it on the train to and from work so when I did finish it I had mixed feelings. I wanted to know more about his life once he was finally in the free state. He didn't explain how he navigated through the slave states to reach his final destination. He gave his reasons. Understandable for the time which was before emancipation but I was still curious and looking forward to reading about that. Also at the end he says he sent for his wife...She wasn't mentioned throughout the entire book then she pops up. Where and when did they meet? I'm really nip picking but overall a very good read. I definitely took advantage of the dictionary that was available on Kindle Unlimited. This guys vocabulary was crazy also some words we just don't use in today's world. Looking for another book to get lost in.

5.0 su 5 stelle I highly recommend this short 8 agosto 2016
Di Galen - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A bite-sized book that is SO well written even for someone that DIDN'T teach himself to read and write...except Douglas did. A page-turner and so noble. at a young age Frederick Douglas' master's wife endeavored to teach him to read (something that was forbidden in most homes) and his master caught them and chewed out his wife in Douglas' presence "You can't teach a slave to read! He becomes unmanageable with all those lofty ideas in his head - becomes unfit to do a slave's work!" And young Douglas reasoned, "if learning makes one unfit to be a slave, then I must learn to read." And so he did, as well as escape to the North to live to use his self-taught skills to tell his story. I highly recommend this short, beautiful, powerful book.
