Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Henry Louis Gates, Jr., presents a seminal volume of four classic slave narratives, including the 1749 texts of The Life of Olaudah Equiano, the last edition corrected and published in his lifetime. The collection also includes perhaps the best known and most widely read slave narrative--Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, as well as two narratives by women: The History of Mary Prince: A West Indian Slave, and Incident in the Life of a Slave Girl, written by Harriet Jacobs as Linda Brent. This edition also features an updated introduction by Professor Gates.

Synopsis:

No group of slaves anywhere, in any era, has left such prolific testimony to the horror of bondage as African-American slaves. Here are four of the most notable narratives: The Life of Olaudah Equiano; The History of Mary Prince; Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass; and Incidents in the Life of Slave Girl.

Synopsis:

This collection of four first-hand accounts of slavery were chosen from the experiences of more than 6,000 ex-slaves, who by 1944 had written moving stories of their captivity. This volume includes portraits of the lives of Olaudah Equiano, Frederick Douglass, Mary Prince, and Harriet Jacobs.
