Summary
This volume is a memoir written by famous American orator and ex-slave, Frederick Douglass (1818-1895). This work is generally held to be the most famous of a number of narratives written by former slaves during the same period. In factual detail, the text describes the events of Douglass' life and is considered to be one of the most influential pieces of literature to fuel the abolitionist movement of the early 19th century in the United States, recounting Douglass' life as a slave and his ambition to become a free man
