ABOUT THIS BOOK
No book more vividly explains the horror of American slavery and the emotional impetus behind the antislavery movement than Frederick Douglass' Narrative. In an introductory essay, Robert Stepto re-examines the extraordinary life and achievement of a man who escaped from slavery to become a leading abolitionist and one of America's most important writers. The John Harvard Library text reproduces the first edition, published in Boston in 1845.
