4.0 von 5 Sternen great insight 11. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I expected this book to be rather historical in nature and probably pretty boring- but I was pleasantly suprised to find it to be a definite page-turner! This book offers valuable insight into what slavery was truly like for Douglass and many others of his time. His account is heart-wrenching. I definitely suggest this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A classic "narrative" 25. April 2000
Von "elljay"
This is one of the most lucid, absorbing autobiographies I've read; that it has much to say about American history, specifically the institution of slavery, only adds to its luster. It is remarkable that someone born into slavery could learn to write as well as virtually any "man of letters" in his era. Despite Douglass' unhappy lot (or maybe because of it), he managed to acquire a great deal of insight into the people, white and black, around him. Douglass convincingly depicts how the institution of slavery damages both oppressed and oppressor--it dehumanizes the former and brings out the cruelest qualities of the latter. (A hundred years later, Martin Luther King would say much the same about the practice of segregration.) There is much anger in the Narrative--but also a wise and noble spirit. Compulsively readable, this book is still very much "relevant" today, and I can hardly imagine a time in which people will no longer wish to read it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen a stark and efficient impression of slavery 8. August 1998
I don't think I ever would have read this book if I did not have to teach it. I found it to be eloquent in both writing style as well as content. My 1968 Signet printing begins with a preface written in 1845 by William Lloyd Garrison. Written in the midst and passion of early abolitionism, Garrison's albeit well-meaning comments are much too preachy, long-winded and redundant; and could probably deter anyone from going on with the book. After a couple of pages of this preface, I put it aside and delved right into Douglass' narrative, and did not return to the preface until after I finished the book. Douglass, however, writes more like the early moderns than his 19th century contemporaries. Highly efficient in his syntax and word choice, he creates images and impressions in a sentence or two which are more powerful than what might take other authors 2 pages. While Douglass, in no uncertain terms, conveys the stark horrors of slavery, he never dwells on them. He r! ushes the narrative to the light at the end of the tunnel, his escape, where he and us both come to the harsh realization that escape to the North is not the end of his torments, but the beginning of new ones. I was most fascinated by the moment in time in which this piece was written. Douglass is not looking back and writing this as a free man in post Civil War America, but rather as an escaped fugitive slave in an America where slavery was still very much a fact of life and the Civil War was 2 decades away. This creates a distinct tone of panic and desperation throughout the narrative. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

4.0 von 5 Sternen The kind of book you want everyone to read ... 13. April 1998
That booklist on your nightstand? Set it aside for 2 days ...
The other day, I was in the bookstore at SeaTac Airport starving for a book of substance. In the literature section, among the few stale, pseudo-classics, I found a book that I had never seen nor heard of before: "The Life of Frederick Douglass" by himself.
You HAVE to read this book ... especially if you think you already know what slavery was about. It makes Roots look like a Disney special. It is a shocking portrayal of inhumanity.
It's also very uplifting to see proof that a person raised in the most inhuman conditions and forcefully deprived of any education can turn around and be so intellegent and such an excellent writer. Accomplished through the shere will, desire to know the truth and determination to control his own destiny.
He also provides some interesting views on organized Christianity in this country which is still applicable to this day.
You can read it in a day or so ... I couldn't put it down. I'm quite ashamed to say that it is the first book I have EVER read by a black author (I can say with 95% confidence). If you find yourself in this same shameful situation, this is the book to start with.

Von Ein Kunde
What at first glance appears to be a gripping story of the evils of slavery and the excitement and thrill of the battle against and escape from those evils, on second glance reveals itself to be a deeply insightful look into the nature (and in some ways the meaning) of humanity. We see the cruelty, the evil, the jealousy, and the brutality and we see the dignity, the honor, the kindness, and the compassion of humanity. We see nearly all that we as humans are capable of and through reading this short narrative we may become aware of the fact that humanity is what we make of it and that inhumanity is not so different from humanity as we had wished.
This book presents a great story that is interesting in and of itself, but it also presents lessons to be learned. Lessons made clear by experiences among the most horrifying in all of human history. Hopefully these lessons will be learned from the experiences of the past and not from new horrific experiences in our own time.
