Frederick Douglass’s Narrative of the lifetime of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave (1845) and Harriet Jacobs’s Incidents within the lifetime of a Slave lady (1861) are autobiographies, written via former slaves, who succeeded in escaping slavery and all its inexpressible cruelties. they're thought of of the main influential, and groundbreaking works of the Antebellum interval, which endure witness to slavery within the usa.
These narratives “that became dual classics in African American literature direction” (cf. Boesenberg 1999: 121), might be in comparison, mentioned and analysed during this paper. despite the fact that, Boesenberg’s class of the texts as “twin classics” should be misinterpret and provides upward push to misinterpretation, because it is probably not the main becoming time period. Twins are greatly considered being virtually a similar. One could argue that this isn't completely actual for Jacobs’s and Douglass’s narratives.
The goal of this paper might be to show a few an important similarities and ameliorations among Douglass’s and Jacobs’s autobiographies. the 1st a part of the paper in brief introduces a few vital similarities of the 2 narratives. In a moment half spotlight will accept to specific gains of those texts: kin ties, gender distinction, sexual exploitation, and manhood and womanhood. In a 3rd half the motif of literacy and its that means for the author’s liberation may be mentioned. the realization summarizes the preceded chapters and severely disputes Boesenberg’s assertion of the dual classics.
