Narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass, an American slave by Frederick Douglass ( Book )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1845, just seven years after his escape from slavery, the young Frederick Douglass published this powerful account of his life in bondage and his triumph over oppression. The book, which marked the beginning of Douglasss career as an impassioned writer, journalist, and orator for the abolitionist cause, reveals the terrors he faced as a slave, the brutalities of his owners and overseers, and his harrowing escape to the North. It has become a classic of American autobiography. This edition of the book, based on the authoritative text that appears in Yale University Presss multivolume edition of the Frederick Douglass Papers, is the only edition of Douglasss Narrative designated as an Approved Text by the Modern Language Associations Committee on Scholarly Editions. It includes a chronology of Douglasss life, a thorough introduction by the eminent Douglass scholar John Blassingame, historical notes, and reader responses to the first edition of 1845. None so dramatically as Douglass integrated both the horror and the great quest of the African-American experience into the deep stream of American autobiography. He advanced and extended that tradition and is rightfully designated one of its greatest practitioners. John W. Blassingame, from the introduction
