5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely required reading. 14 décembre 2001
Par James Yanni - Publié sur
Anyone who wishes to be considered at all educated in the history of the United States MUST read this book. The period of this history is absolutely critical to an understanding of the country both before and after that time, as well, obviously, as during that time. And without reading the account of this great American of his experiences, one can not, truly, understand that time period.
Granted, there will be those who will argue, "But why should we need to read an anti-slavery tract; there's no one alive now who would argue in favor of slavery, or deny that it was a great evil. To read a book whose primary purpose was to convince people of what is now considered obvious is pointless." But the same argument could be used to apply to reading a biography of George Washington, or Thomas Jefferson. Most of the issues that were important to them are currently decided, and decided in their favor. Yet it is still considered neccessary for an educated American to have at least a passing idea of the history of their lives.
The same is true of Frederick Douglass. The man risked his life for freedom, just as surely as did Patrick Henry, or any of the founding fathers, and his history is just as much a part of this country as theirs is; further, it is worth seeing just how literate a man born in slavery, not only self-taught, but self-taught on the sly, against every effort of his oppressors to stifle his education, can be. His facility for language is frankly better than 90% of modern Americans of any color, in spite of virtually universal education. He was a great man, and deserves to be recognized as such.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not terribly readable 8 décembre 2012

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Do yourself a favor and pick up a different edition of this classic work. This one is inexpensive, sure, but not very reader-friendly. The print is small and crammed, and the paper is akin to newsprint. It does not invite you to read it, which is unfortunate: too few people are reading classics these days as it is.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A watershed in slave narratives 6 septembre 2001
Par Patrick Mcgranaghan - Publié sur
This is an excellent narrative from a slave of the highest acumen. This books details the oppression that Douglass went through before he finally escaped to freedom.
Douglass wrote several autobiographies, but this is the most read. This narrative is in a genre that was popular with abolitionists in the pre-war north. The reader should note that most of the narratives written at that time had a rigid caste, so Douglass' narrative is not as original as it might seem. In his later autobiographies he contradicts some important events in this narrative. However, with that said, it is still a book of the highest order. I gave the book 5 stars because it is truly a masterpiece, in both writing and theme, and therefore should be read by all who can. I've recommended this book to my friends and they all agree. The Dover edition is only about 80 pages long, so it can easily be read in one or two sittings.
One more caveat; if you are interested in learning about how Douglass escaped to freedom, this is not the book. I was a little disappointed because Douglass did not give any details about his escape to New York. The book was published in pre-war America, and he could not risk exposing those who had helped him to the general public. Nevertheless, this book is gripping and will hold you till the very end.

Book has very tiny print making it a tough read. Would have been better if it were normal font size.

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.
