Frederick Douglass A narrative of the life of Douglass – Nineteenth Century Literature Essay
Frederick Douglas’s narrative on his life is the best narrative I have came across so far in my entire life. The narrative is captivating and shocking at some parts. The author explains clearly his life form the beginning, the trials he went through and how he got to be where he is now. The narrative tries to explain and
simplify the horrors of slavery to the normal reader. The narration and examples in it are sometimes too graphic but they serve the purpose. Douglas trials and tribulations through life and his perseverance enabled him to overcome the prejudice and hate that followed him wherever he went.
It is good to say that Douglass was a very strong willed individual and he could not give up easily on his dreams of freedom from slavery.
