Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Self-educated speaker and author. 1872 vice-presidential nominee. The 19th century’s most photographed man. Frederick Douglass, an enslaved man, went on to become one of the most celebrated freedom fighters in U.S. history. His autobiography, published in 1845, maps out his life story in vivid, often heartbreaking detail.

After learning the alphabet from a slaveholder’s wife, Douglass covertly learned to read with the help of some white children in town. Once he was sold to a slaveholder known for his cruelty, Douglass risked his life to escape north, disguised as a free Black sailor. Ten years later, that daring escape was almost for naught when the release of his book brought him attention that could have led to his recapture. Douglass initially fled the country, but returned when his supporters raised the funds to secure his status as a free man. For the rest of his life, Douglass continued to speak out against slavery, becoming famous for his impassioned speeches and incredible life story.

Haven't read better. A great book with eerie parallels to what still happens today. Very well written and thought out. Especially love the poem at the end.

A necessary read. This should be required reading in America.

Respect. I haven't read a book about four to five years ago and now I just want to read more books but I like this one it was awesome!!!

These Words Live On. Everyone should have to read this book.

Good book. Really liked that it was real events of his life

Garbage. Long boring a** book

Wow!. Every American should be required to read this. Truly one of the most important books ever written.

One of the best perspectives of the world. I love how Frederick Douglass appreciates the ability to read. Often times I feel that I take that gift for granted. Instead of reading inspiring and truthful words, sometimes I find myself reading falsehoods and intellectually intrusive ideas, and it is in those moments that I remind myself that the ability to read is one of the most powerful attributes one can attain. Let us not waste such a tremendous gift.

Eloquence in describing a dark time in History. This is a moving story so well told that one feels they are present during the ravages and cruelty of slavery, that was allowed and promoted by the Christian people of both the North and South. Difficult to read in that it is a moving story of the evils that were allowed to exist in our country. Definitely worth a read.

Awesome. I read this book in a couple of days and couldn't put it down. I wonder what Mr. Douglas would thing about how things are now thanks to his "humble" efforts.

Narrative Life. A gripping story that was hard to put down! An absolutely must read!

Every Black Person Should Read!. I should have read this book in grade school. Sadly, this narrative is still alive in 2020. Different times, same struggle.

Required Reading. The importance of keeping the true narrative of Slavery is paramount to understanding where we are now and how little progress we have made accepting and embracing our broken and misrepresented history. We cannot understand where we are without understanding where we’ve been. Change must happen forthwith. We cannot allow this to happen anymore.

A view into the awful american past written beautifully. This is a must read for anyone seeking to understand how slavery shaped the USA back then in the early 1800 to today. The USA has come a long way and yet we have a long way to go. Regardless of your race or creed, this book will inspire you to do you part to further improve the condition of man. We are all from the human race and no man should have unchecked power or it will absolutely corrupt that man. It is our duty to keep the powerful checked for they have no control of the sureness of their corruption and do this for the victims of the powerful’s wrath. Live fair.

A First-Hand Account of the Horrors of Slavery. A vivid description of the abhorrent treatment of Douglass as a slave, as well as his observations and his thoughts, from the time he was a young boy until his escape many years later. He recounts the disparate treatment he received from different masters and "overseers" through these, seemingly countless, years ("Seemingly countless" has literal meaning because, until he taught himself to read and write, he had no knowledge of the months of the year, or the days of the week). And while he was treated savagely and without mercy by some, and less so by others, it's only a matter of degree, not status. Interestingly, he was probably "lucky" to have been enslaved in Maryland, and not in Alabama, or the "deeper" South. Do yourself a favor and just read it.

Informative. Good details in the text. Works well with a vivid imagination.

Narrative of the life of Fredrick Douglass. I found myself gritting my teeth and clinching my jaw at the atrocity brought upon my fellow man. I found myself cheering on when Mr. Douglass stood up for his humanity and shouted for joy at his escape. He is an inspiration for all who read this book.

Great piece of literature. Great book! Gives the reader an inside look of the life of a slave in the 19th century. This books is also an amazing piece of literature and full of rich rhetoric.
