Présentation de l'éditeur
Henry Louis Gates, Jr., presents a seminal volume of four classic slave narratives, including the 1749 texts of The Life of Olaudah Equiano
, the last edition corrected and published in his lifetime. The collection also includes perhaps the best known and most widely read slave narrative--Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass
, as well as two narratives by women: The History of Mary Prince: A West Indian Slave
, and Incident in the Life of a Slave Girl
, written by Harriet Jacobs as Linda Brent. This edition also features an updated introduction by Professor Gates.
