3.0 von 5 Sternen A frustrating story about a slave's 9 year escape to freedom
I had to read this book for school, and I was impressed with some of it. The tone was realistic and believable, and the characters were interesting. But the plot was slow, the book is 200 pages long, and the main character's passive nature makes you want to scream. I don't recommend this book for free reading, but as a slave narrative it meets it's purpose of telling...

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Story Must Be Told Often!, 19. Juli 2000
Incidents in the Life Of A Slave Girl is a harrowing, personal experience of a AA female born and raised during the tumultuous, infamous and tragic era of slavery in America's history. Harriett Jacobs, aka Linda Brent, tells in her own voice-one that is explicit and easy to understand-the story of a young woman born into the brutal, horrendous slavery era who later escapes to freedom in the North. Incidents is emotional and the feelings are raw as you experience the tale of a slave who desired freedom so badly that she hid for SEVEN YEARS in a narrow, cramped quarter without much freedom of movement. The story is riveting and moving and shows what an individual is able to accomplish in spite of sex, race and slavery. Incidents is a story of bravery in light of insurmountable circumstances and ones belief that they can succeed in spite of unmeasurable difficulties.
Incidents is an excellent reading selection for a bookgroup and a book that I highly recommend to everyone. Remember the story and share the story so that history doesn't repeat itself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It has given me a bold new incite of Afican Slaves, 2. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
"Incidents In the Life Of a Slave Girl," has given me a new incite into the lives of African American female slaves, and the institution of slavery it self. I have often neglected to read about the lives that slaves lead during that time period, because I often felt uncomfortable about the subject of slavery. But this book has shown me that my ancestor did what they could with what the had. I recommend this book for all peolple,particularly African American females, because this book gives you an example of what American female slaves had to contend with, along with the strength and courage that they had just to live. Thank You

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Slave History, 8. Januar 2000
This book is hard to put down, and hard to pick up. Dramatic recall of her life as a slave and her escape. I love this book and recommend it to anyone wanting to know the truth about life as a female slave.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very poweful tale of the great injustice put on slaves., 24. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I have read Incidents in the Life of a Slave by Harriet Jacobs, twice! I enjoyed reading her book. Her book is full of rich vocabulary. Her writing skills and the description of events she used was impressive, i.e. the separation of mother and child being sold to slaveholders, I felt the pain. In her writings, she constantly humbled herself because of her circumstances of being a slave and how she felt incompetent to write her life story. I must say that Jacobs did a magnificent job, considering her life of chattel slavery. Besides being courageous, strong and enduring, she was a very wise person. I think Jacob's does not give herself credit for being wise. She was very wise because she had to plan various strategies to outwit her devil master's attempts to capture her. She was wise in not trusting Harriet Beecher Stowe. What was Stowe's purpose of forwarding Jacob's writings to Mrs. Willis, which included her sexual history? Jacobs was no fool. Finally, the most indelible impression on my mind was when she hid in her grandmother's house, above the storage room, for seven years! I was right there with her. Great job Harriet Jacobs!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent for analysis of intersection of race and gender, 8. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
My theory is that the tension between gender ideology and racial realities is demonstrated by the way escaped bondswoman Harriet Jacobs must tell her tale to pro-abolition Whites in her Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl: Written by Herself (writing as Linda Brent) (edited by Lydia Maria Francis Child) (introduction by Jean Fagan Yellin) (Cambridge, MA: Harvard U. Press, 1987) (1861). At the time Jacobs wrote, popular culture defined femininity based on chastity and child rearing. But Jacobs was writing about experiences of sexual assault not encountered by most White women. In order to establish credibility with that audience, Jacobs goes to great pains to describe both her attempts to prevent her owner from raping her and her desire to care for her children.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book has affected me for my entire life!, 11. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Throughout my education, this book has been assigned -- from elementary school to college. I have read this book over and over and never cease to find details that astound me. There is an amazing depth to this woman, and the subtle craft of her writing reveal it in full force.
You may find a comparison between this work and Frederick Douglass' autobiography worthwhile. They are both abolitionists, but they attack that "demon slavery" in very different ways. And personally, I have always preferred Jacob's style of sentiment. She hits you where it hurts the most: in the heart.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Onkel Tom's Schwester, 16. April 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Ein Bericht eines Sklavenlebens von der Geburt bis in die Freiheit - wo gibt es so etwas authentisch und aus erster Hand? Nirgends? Weit gefehlt! Wenn man glaubt, etwas über die Zeit der Sklaverei in den USA und über das Leben der betroffenen Menschen zu wissen, der irrt wahrscheinlich, wenn er nicht diese Autobiographie der Sklavin Linda Brent alias Harriet Jacobs mit seiner intensivenSicht von ganz innen und ganz unten gelesen hat.
Unbedingt lesen! Dieses Erlebnis wird man niemals wieder vergessen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I truly enjoyed it!, 22. Mai 1998
I really loved this book. I read it for a college English class, and I was blown away by Jacob's writing and personal journey. She protrayed herself as a woman of dignity, courage, and strength, and I just cannot say enough about it. It is a must read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, 21. August 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Eine sehr bewegendes Dokument über das Leid und das Elend, welches durch Ausbeutung und Sklaverei entsteht. Weit weg von jeder Onkel Toms Hütten Romantik.
