Introduction by Kwame Anthony Appiah Commentary by Jean Fagan Yellin and Margaret Fuller   This Modern Library edition combines two of the most important African American slave narratives--crucial works that each illuminate and inform the other.   Frederick Douglass's Narrative, first published in 1845, is an enlightening and incendiary text. Born into slavery, Douglass became the preeminent spokesman for his people during his life; his narrative is an unparalleled account of the dehumanizing effects of slavery and Douglass's own triumph over it.   Like Douglass, Harriet Jacobs was born into slavery, and in 1861 she published Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, now recognized as the most comprehensive antebellum slave narrative written by a woman. Jacobs's account broke the silence on the exploitation of African American female slaves, and it remains essential reading.   Includes a Modern Library Reading Group Guide… (mer)

A great introduction to the depressing, yet amazingly hopeful, world of slave narrative. ( )

Frederick Douglass hardly needs to be defended, right? In case you haven't read this, and think it might be speechy or difficult to read, it's not. Douglass is smart enough to know he doesn't have to tell you how to feel; his story is plenty gripping enough without editorializing. And while he's an eloquent writer, and will occasionally engage in rhetoric, the thing's only 100 pages long; it flies. (Besides, he earns his rhetoric. Remember that hundreds of slave narratives were written. Douglass' is the classic because it's very, very good. They didn't pick his name out of a hat.) It's an amazing piece of work, and I can't imagine a reason not to read it.

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was new to me, but it's almost as good. Jacobs isn't as polished as Douglass, but she has a directness that's really appealing, and a boldness that's sortof awesome. She writes unflinchingly about the widespread rape of slaves by white men. Douglass does too, but she focuses relentlessly on it. Incidents becomes a twisted mirror image of [b:Pamela|417549|Pamela Or, Virtue Rewarded|Samuel Richardson|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1174571531s/417549.jpg|2214950]: this is how that book turns out if it's set in American and the serving woman is a slave. (And if you throw some Anne Frank in for good measure.)

I was really happy to see this edition, combining both accounts; it's smart to put them together. Brilliant stuff.

For some context, the best essay I read was Caille Millner's "The Slave Narrative" in [b:A New Literary History of America.|6694761|A New Literary History of America (Harvard University Press Reference Library)|Greil Marcus|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1275979828s/6694761.jpg|6890289] ( )

Excellent, but grim peek into the mindset of both master and slave, filtered through the slave experience. Tough reading, but I think it should be required reading for school. ( )
