5.0 étoiles sur 5 An inspring story of a man born into the world as a slave, but determined to be free. 29 décembre 2013
Par Blaine Greenfield - Publié sur
Heard NARRATIVE OF THE LIFE OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS (Recorded Books), written by Douglass and read by Charles Turner.It is the story of a man born into the world as a slave. He would have died a slave, too, had he not taught himself to read and write . . . and then made the decision that one day, he would be free from slavery.His did eventually escape from bondage, going on to become one of the abolition movement’s most persuasive speakers. In addition, Douglass became a strong backer for women’s rights.NARRATIVE had me cringing, at times, with respect to how anybody could have been treated in such a brutal way–and how the practice was allowed for so long in this country. Overall, it moved me more than 12 YEARS A SLAVE–the film currently out that covers much the same topic.

The book was so educational and eye opening. The fact that it was written by a slave and gave his experiences, made this book profoundly real. I had to put it down after reading the first couple chapters because I had trouble sleeping because the graphic detail of abuse was so disturbing. I picked it up a week or so later and finished it, but read it early in the day. It's was very insightful and I recommend it to anyone who wants to know real history.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Primary Source From a Primary Man 29 janvier 2014

Frederick Douglass is best known for this tiny little testimony and true story regarding his time as a slave and his subsequent escape to freedom. However, at the time, he was one of the most powerful men in society. Saying that and being an African American was a feat beyond the recognition of most American citizens today. He conversed with Abraham Lincoln, helped to convince him to make the Civil War about slavery, traveled extensively and became highly involved in not only abolitionism, but equal rights for women and was of high government standing in foreign countries. The man was a tour de force, an inspiration, and from such humble beginnings, too!

Douglass was born into slavery. He did not know when he was exactly born and he knew little of his mother and even less of his father. He struggled through cold winter nights, blistering hot summers, went naked during his childhood, and had only mediocre clothes during his adult life. He suffered starvation, whippings, beatings, and vulgar abuse while also being privy to this upon his fellow man. When he finally escaped he was inspired to write this Narrative to bring to light the tortures of slavery.

The Narrative is quintessentially perfect for historians and for those of us searching for a speck of humanity in an inhumane world. He paints a picture that is completely and utterly accurate. He is never pompous and often can be known to tell the truth because he does not omit overseers and masters that were, in fact, kind and either stayed that way or were warped by the nuances of slavery, making them as much of a victim as the slaves. He is also a very careful writer, not once giving away how or with whose help he managed to escape. To do so, he was convinced and was most likely correct in saying so, he believed that slaveholders and those willing to keep slavery as a system would use his knowledge to the detriment of any other slave who wished to be free.

The short autobiography offers a wide range of political and social questioning into humanity, making it an appropriate read back int he 1800s as well as today.
