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."

This not a copy of the original text it was "revised for common core standards" as it says on the book. In other words, you're not getting the whole story as written by Fredrick Douglass.

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).
4.0 su 5 stelle Good book to read. 10 giugno 2016

The book shows very well the difficult circumstances that slaves in America had to live under. It also shows how humans can become so mean and tyrannical when given ultimate power over someone. This is also how dictators are born in our world. When someone is given power over another that person's pride can get out of control. They get away with one thing, then another, and another. Their friends are likewise minded and tell each other that they are great guys, it goes to their heads. The book also shows how if you look different from another and you have the power then you can assume you are better. Racism can develop and other cruel things too. God wants us to work together. Appreciate each other, enjoy the talents of everyone, we can all help our nation and world if we throw unrestricted selfish pride to the side. A little pride isn't bad but overgrown pride is destructive. Just as the Bible says, "Pride goeth before the fall."

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle An Important Perspective on Slavery 24 dicembre 2008
Di Marilyn Squier - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Often taught along side Frederick Douglass's Narritive of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, Jacobs' Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl offers an important incite into the abuses that female slaves faced. While Douglass's narrative stresses house slavery emasculated male slaves, Jacbos shows how slavery robbed female slaves of their womanhood. Jacobs' alter-ego, Linda Brent, was never physically beaten, like Douglass; the horrors of slavery for her were sexual horrors. Linda must try to ward of the sexual advances of her master while simultaneously dealing with the sexual jealously of her mistress.

This text is important because it shows how the experience of slavery was gendered and how the experience of womanhood was different for people in different classes. Linda's mother, grandmother, and first mistress all believed in the cult of true womanhood, a prevelant ideology in mid-nineteenth century America that said that women should be "pure, pious, domestic and submissive." Linda was raised with these ideas, but failed to live up to them. While Linda feels shameful and guilty for failing to live up to the standards of the cult of true womanhood, she realizes that slave women cannot be judged by the same standards as middle-class white women because their cultural context is so different. This is, perhaps, the most radical and important message in Jacobs' text.

From the time that the narrative was published (anonymously) until the 1980s, the authenticity of Jacobs' narrative has been called into question. For over 100 years, scholars and historians assumed that the narrative was false, either ghost written by the editor (Lydia Maria Child) or completely written by her without a grain of truth. Thanks to the work of historian Jean Fagan Yellin, we now know that the narrative was written by Jacobs herself and that all the major events in the narrative are true. There is no reason why this book shouldn't be read as an authentic slave narrative.
